from all over South Kast Kootenay
will gather in this city for the an-
nual general meeting of the Mountain Lumbermen's association.
In the past the annual meetings
have been herd in Nelson, but on
this occasion the members responded
to the urgent invitation ol the lumbermen of this district to meet in
Cranbrook. As the Mountain Lumbermen's association had its origin
in Cranbrnok it is only right that
it should celebrate an occasional anniversary in its home town.
The sessions of the association will
be held on Friday and Saturday, and
arrangements will be made so that
the visitors will not be unduly taxed
with Work. A special feature of the
gathering will lie a grand hall in the

To the  Electors of the City of
1 beg to submit herewith a synopsis n[ the work ol the council during
the past year.
From January the 4th to December the 3rd inclusive, the council
held 32 meetings, with an average ol
five members at each meeting. On
January tiie iih tlie council gave the
Water Works Co. notice of their intention to purchase the plant some
time during tlie year. On May the
fiili. Mr John Gait, consulting engineer ol Toronto, was appointed to
invesiigate the water works system
very careful!*, and submit cost ol
same, also to lurnish the council
with plans and an approximate cost
of a sewerage system.
On 'hinc the 2nd, the council
granted to the Klrctric Light com*
pany an extension of ono year from
May the 27th, 1008, in which to
compiele their power plant They
deposited with the city $8,000 0(1 as
a guarantee of their good faith
This 18,000.00 is now drawing interest at the rate of H per cent per
annum, and no doubt every one is;
aware the new plant of the company
will be completed well within the
time limit, and 1 have no doubt hut
what it will he one ol the best electric plants in the interior of British
On .lime the 28th the council Instructed the solicitor to look into
the matter of obtaining the water
right on Gold Creek. This matter
was taken up, and Mr. Parker, civil
engineer, was instructed to run levels
from Oold Creek to St. Joseph's
Creek, and make up an estimate of
the probable cost of conveying water
from Gold Creek into St. Joseph's.
Mr. Parker went carefully into this
matter, and has informed us thnt
it will be possible to convey 50ft
inches of water from one creek to
the    other at    an expense of about
$10,000.00.       A record of .100 inches
has     liecu applied     for, and I have'
been Informed the government   have.
granted same.    Any one who   knows
Gold Creek will admit that there is;
no     purer     water lo be found than
that of    Cold     Creek,     and at anytime     in the future, if   found necessary, this water can he diverted into I
St.   Joseph's,   and thus double   our
present allowance.
On July the lOtfa tht- council instructed the solicitor to begin ex-
propriat ion proceedings to obtain
possession of an old record ol BOO
inches of water from St. Joseph's
Creek On account of the numerous
questions Involved we lound it necessary to send the solicitor to Victoria, and we are Informed that the
matter is now settled, and as soon
as the members ol the cabinet can
get to it, an order in council will lie
granted,  winding  tin- natter up
On July the 2dth the council decided to place before the ratepayers
a bylaw tor 170,000,00 to purchase
the water works system, and to
make extensions on same. This bylaw was voted on VugUSt the 3rd
and carried by a very large majority.
On account of Investors being able
to procure a much better paying investment than city debentures, we
found it exceedingly hard to place
these debentures, and it required
quite a long time to do it, and we
feel that we were very fortunate
in placing them at par, and on account of the delay caused in placing
the debentures, the city did not take
over the water works until October
Heceipts for the three
from ordinary stated
is $3,018.00, meter rates
wages about $600.00, Icav-
nct revenue for the three
months of about $3,700,00. Of the
$15,000.00 voted for the extension of
the water works system, we have
spent about $12,500.00, lor which we
have installed    2,500 feet of IS inch
pipe, 1,000 feet of II inch pipe, and
2,100 feet of 12 inch pipe We also
have on hand 25 of the latest style
hydrants, hut on account of the
manufacturers being rushed they
were unable to deliver these until I Cranbrook
it was too late to install them on \ M. \\ King
account of frost. We also arranged
to have a t. inch pipe line installed
between the city and the hospital,
most of which is completed at a
very light expense to the city This
line should have been installed years
ago, but it seimed that it was
impossible to make arrangements to
do so I feel that this is one    of
the most important lines of any. on
account of the vast number of people
who are confined in the hospital, and
no doubt in case of fire, without
proper fire protection, the suffering
would be very great Our water

From school days Mr. Asquith was Frederick A. Cook and liy Command'

It is sometimes said that Hit* country is governed by Halliol men, and
that Mr. Asquith is the most typical
ol tht' successful men whom the ^rent
college lias given to the state. Possibly the new member who listens
to him is not aware that he is a
Dalllnl man, hut il he watches him
in the house he will come to the conclusion thai lie was trained In the
BChool ol tho quiet strung men to
whom tIII* country turns in the hour
n( need Sir Edward Groy, who to
also a Dalllol man, has the same parliamentary manner lie is never
hurried, hut is as calm and dispas-
BiunatO in the liniments of greatest
I'vcili'ineiil as in the clobato on the
most ordinary details of his department,
Mr. Asquith shares another distinction with Sir Edward (Irey, for he
was one of the young men of his
party whom Mr. Gladstone singled
out for an Important place in his last
administration. )t was considered a
daring step at tho time to choose a
comparatively unknown debater to
move tho amendment to the address
which proved fatal to Lord Salisbury's administration in 1802. Hut
the choice was justified by the brilliant speech which Mr. Asquith made.
He was installed at the home qfflCQ
in the government of 1H!)2, after only
six years of parliamentary experience. How vigorously Mr. Asquith
performed his duties, how he breathed a new spirit into a stagnant department and gave a new meaning
and purpose to the enactments passed for the protection of labor, arc
matters within the memory of not a
few members who watch him on the
Ireasury bench today.
From the home secretaryship Mr.
Asquith went back to the bar, and
set himself the double task of earning a living and maintaining a parliamentary position. When the
question of the war arose, he took
the Imperialist side, and was one gf
those Who followed Lord Hosebery
into the Liberal league. He made a
number of speeches upon the war, in
all of which he held to his own views
with great firmness if with moderation of statement. Mis greater
opening came, however, when Mr.
Chamberlain startled the country
with his fiscal policy. Then Mr.
Asquith, with his hard training in
political economy, was ready and
equipped. He at once became Mr.
Chamberlain's most persistent antagonist, meeting him in the house,
and following him from place to
place about the country. His criticism of the fallacies of protection
was merciless and complete.
It is his quiet determination and
serene self-confidence that gives the
house this pervading sense of the
strength of bis personality. He has
never been found out in a blunder,
and he has never committed one of
those blazing indiscretions which Sir
William Ilarcourt once declared every
politician must commit to become
famous. What Sir William meant,
perhaps, was that a statesman
should possess that sympathy with
human weakness which the commission of a political indiscretion affords
to the strongest character. If Mr.
Asquitb has not yet quite developed
the gift of tolerance of well-meaning
stupidity, be has made amazing advances in that direction, and his
handling of the house has improved
in Ihe same degree, while the duties
of leadership have been thrown upon
Is the new member right in the assumption that Mr. Asquith is an austere, grey man who shows no mercy
to a weaker opponent? His language is certainly incisive, but it is
not persons but principles that
interest him, and he has none of that
party personal feeling for his oppin-
cnls which so often mars debates in
the house of commons. He has
never been known to make on unpleasant or n rude remark of nnyone;
but for the facts, figures and arguments of certain politicians opposite
he has an undisguised contempt. He
is conscious of his intellectual superiority and takes no troubfe to hide
that fact.
In reality in spite of the popular
tradition that represents him as an
austere man who tins no particular
aflct lion for his fellow men, he is a
Rental man, with a sense of humor,

you will find that Mr. Asquitb has
made some of the wittiest epigrams
ol the day Hut be does not often
allow himself this relaxation. His
power of speich, in which be is
Second to none In the house, is kept
for serious utfairs. His mastery of
debate is assumed to be a natural
gift, and members whisper that
"Asquith was born a speaker." They
somehow imagine him making nra'
(ions in bis cradle. But the truth
is that be is as much an example nf
the necessity of work and constant
application as other grent men. Al
though his hair is fast whitening and
his face has grown more lined, he
never relaxes that grim concentration nf energy and purpose which
hns cnrrled him so far. He is one
the most tremendous workers in
public life, not eicepting Mr. Unlaw U would no tht ftrat     to
from Yorkshire and of Nonconformist stock. - He received his education
at the city of London school, and
tc went to Balliol with a scholar-
thip. His career there was bril-
j taut. Almost every prize and
lonor that was within his reach he
Captured, and he made a prolound
impression upon his contemporaries.
As president ol the union he established a level of speaking in that
assembly thai remained as a tradition for years.

forged letters, and the triumph was

It was this same Parncll commission which indirectly gave Mr. Asquith tho opening lor his big success
in parliament. In the debate upon
the report, he made the reply to Sir
Richard Webster (Lord Alverstone),
and he handled the situation with the
same dexterity and readiness that he
had shown with his chance opportunity in court. His reputation was
made. He had caught the eyes of
the leaders, and at forty Mr. Asquith passed straight from the back
benches to the cabinet.
Mr. Asquith took over the reins of
Liberal government on April 13,
1008, having been chancellor of the
exchequer up to that date. He was
born at Morlcy on September I2t
1852, and is thus 57 years of age.
He has been married twice. By his
first wife, Miss Melland, of Manchester, he had six daughters. His
second wife was Miss Margot Ten-

Mr. Asquith is not good looking.
His face has been justly described as
hard and parchment?; the face of
one who might have been fed upon
the calf binding of Blackstone or
Coke, mingled with ragouts made up
of blue hooks. His figure is stiff
and stocky.- Nor does he improve
his appearance by the display of
any care in dress. In fact, he is
justly reputed as one of the shabbiest garbed men in parliament—
this, too, in spite of the efforts of
Mrs. Asquith to keep bim well
groomed. He has taken up golf,
though in a rather desultory way.
But with that exception he has manifested no interest whatsoever in any
form of sport. He neither rides nor
yachts, and is as indifferent to racing as he is to cricket, tennis and
football. In fact, his interests in
liTe arc restricted exclusively to
polities, to law, and to his family,
to which he is devoted to an extent
that would ama/e those who only
know him as the coldest and most
unemotional political leader known
in public life since the disappearance
of Lord lleaconsfield. His intellect
is of the positive, sober, unromantic
order, and as such commends bim to
the English people as a singularly
safe minister of the crown.

2. Wireless Telegraphy.—In some
respects the most dramatic of all
events on the ocean and the most
wonderful of all accomplishments of
science was the saving of the lives of
some fifteen hundred passengers in
the Republic of the White Star line
by wireless telegraphy
3. Great Ocean Speed.—The year
1009 has produced, by the steamship
Mauretania, the highest ocean   speed
[yet attained. The Manretania's record is as follows: Eastward: Highest day's run, Dill knots, shortest.
passage, 1 days, 13 hours, 41 minutes (short track), highest average
speed, 25.811 knots (long track.)
Westward: highest day's run, (173
knots, shortest passage, I days, HI
hours, f.l minutes (short track);
highest average speed, 26.00 knots
(short irnck). The Mauretania
holds all eastward records for highest daily runs, fastest passages,
shortest passages, and highest speed
between the Irish coast and Sandy
4. Man Begins to Fly—This same
year has seen most wonderful demonstrations of the success of Hying machines — not merely stecrahle ha-
loons, but machines that are heavier
than air and yet really liy In spite
of this weight. Prominent in many
daring flights during the year have
been: In America, the Wrinht brothers; in Germany, Count Zeppelin
(with his huge, metal-covered dirigible balloon); and in France, M.
Blcriot (who was first to cross the
English Channel in a flying machine.)
The Wireless Telephone.—Another wonderful achievement is the
ability to send the voice through
space without wires. With the wireless telephone, the voice produces
electrical vibrations, and these travel
through as do the electrical waves
of wireless telegraphy. One writer
has expressed it thus: "The difference
is precisely that between shouting to
a man across the street and talking
to him over the wire, save that the
radiophone hurls the sound waves
over greater distances than the unaided voice."

The land might properly he divided
into three classes; upper and lower
bench land and bottom land, Tho
former are generally dear of brush
and timber, A passage from the

all, and be of immense service to the
development   ol    tho   dormant    ro-

It is not alone from Hie product- id

of breaking tho land Skookum-

logging operations. The r I' It. anil
the     C.N.P.  lumber companies have
timbered, and in part completely open that lies towards the
south tor eight miles, has for
long been known as "Skookumchuck
Prairie." Some years ago wild or
outlaw horses used to range here,
until killed oft to give peace to a
more tractable race of stock.
The fertility of the soil is amply
demonstrated in such portions as are
already being farmed in the neighborhood, t'pon the upper and lower
benches, and upon the bottom
lands, and upon all the Intermediate
soils characteristic of these, the experiments that have for some years
been in progress, are now ready for
practice on a larger scale.    The gen-

mentioned will then be crossed in
. two places, once about three miles
north of Mr. Hannant's ranch, on
j the north line nf lot 342, and again
j to the south of Mr. Hannant's,
I where the wagon road descends into
| the valley. The former pipe will be
32 inches inside measurement, and the
latter U8 inch. This piping will be
1 of three inch material, tongue and
grooved and will l>c joined at the
ends and hooped at intervals in proportion to the pressure. A complete
system of laterals has also been ela-
: borated to conduct water onto in-
I dividual tracts.
dealing with tlie aeration of soils
seems very applicable to these
lands. "There are many prairies in
various parts or the world which are
underlaid with coarse gravel •••*•
ofU>n extending to depths of many
feet. The soils of such districts
must be subject to a peculiarly
strong ventilation or breathing,
which may have not a little to do
with thp wonderful productiveness
usually characteristic of such lands."
The bottom lands are of a loamy
nature and are suitable for all
kinds of hay crops. The oeeas-umal
flooding of the river over a part of
this land is only harmful when the
water   remains    ton    long   on   the
camps up the river, which arc likely
to afford work for the ranch horses
during the off season, besides contributing a constant market for the
rancher's produce, and in some
cases bringing grist    to the mill    in
; the shape of lodgers, from among the
lumbermen. The company also propose to   move   their   mill onto   the
'canal site and to cut lumber for
settlers use as soon as necessary.
The magnificent sport to be had
both in the line of fishing, small
game and big game shooting, will
also attract a special class of tourist into the neighborhood. Grizzly

a matter of congratulation to all Interested In the Kootenays, since
East Kootenay with its larger and

partner, West Kootenay, One reason
lor this has deen the lack of natural

These bottom lands lie entirely on

to establish an experimental (arm in

deplored, from the lact that the
great extent nf country and of more

excuse for past apathy, but now that
we are well started on 1 lie new year
it is very much up to the board ol
trade to get busy, There is plenty
to do and there is no time like the
present to make a start, in tho
first place the board of trade should
get ready to do their part in entertaining tbe visiting lumbermen, who
will be here in force mi Friday,
January lith, for their annual meeting, The lumber industry is one in
which the future of Cranbrook is
very greatly concerned and nui
board ■ >f trade, as representative ol
the business interests of the city,
should he very much in evidence upon
the occasion ol the assembly here ol
the chief men engaged in that industry in this province,
Local lumbermen will doubtless
make arrangements for tho entertainment of their visiting .colleagues,
who are to assemble in this city on
Friday, January llth, for the annual
general meeting of ihe Mountain
Lumbermen's association, but, in
view of the commercial importance
of this association, it would he very
much in order if our board of trade
were to appoint a committee to cooperate with tbe local lumbermen in
the preparation of a program of entertainment. Every member of tho
hoard of trade should be prepared tit
devote time and care to making the
forthcoming meeting of tbe mountain
lumbermen an unqualified success and
there is no doubt hut that litis
spirit will be displayed if tbe officers
of the board get busy at once.
The provincial legislature meets
January UOtb and it will he in order
for the board of trade to took over
tbe situation and decide what. if
any, public works are required in
Cranbrook district, as well as to discuss any other matters of district
importance, which call for the intervention of the legislature. Then,
too, there is the very important
question of the early construction of
the Kootenay Central railway, a
matter that should receive the early, earnest consideration of the
board of trade. There wilt he no
difficulty about finding work for the
hoard to do, the question now is,
When will the hoard meet and get
down to business?
The Fruit Magazine for January is
to hand and it is fully as interesting
ami as instructive as its predecessors. In a leading article, tlie
editor lias some pertinent remarks to
make anent the necessity for revision of tbe provincial public school
curriculum in the direction of providing more adequate instruction in tlie
science of agriculture,     fie says:
"Anyone who has been traveling
over British Columbia for, say ten
years, and taking note of the rapid
development of what seemed desert
waste a few years ago hut now
transformed Into productive fields of
root crops, grass, leguminous plants
and blushing orchards, cannot fail
to be inspired with the great nossi-
bllltlcs in agriculture which this
province affords. When, as is quite
natural, he stops to consider what
may be the extent to which the agricultural and horticultural resources
of the country may he utilized, tbe
Vaitneas of the possibilities soon he-
come perplexing and mystifying. The
eastern provinces of tbe Dominion
and the outside     world have not yet
dreamed   and   lew people who reside
here have yet been able lo COtnprc
bend the potential vastness of tin-
sloping tablelands and valleys lying
securely guarded between these
eternal hills • • • These fertile
areas mean the future stability nf
this province and guarantee pleasant
nnd profitable employment for a
numerous rural population and the
mainstay of the cities as well."
"The common old-fashioned farmer,
however, Is not the kind of agriculturist required in British Columbia,
hut educated men and women, who
are prepared to study and practice
the science of agriculture from an
intelligent, up-to-date standpoint and
produce four tons where one grew
with the shiftless, slipshod method
o( former times, practical, scientific
horticulturists who will tram nnd
cultivate an apple tree to yield twenty boxes of fruit instead of five with
a minimum of expenditure in proportion to the Increase nnd then display
that raflnammt, culture and skill in
preparing it for the market as will
tempt the eye and the appetite of
connoisseurs and thus increase the
demand and consumption. The ordinary man of average intelligence
can readily adapt himself to Ibis,
one of tlie noblest arts nf peace, il
lie will only take Josh Hillings' advice and "not cany his wishbone
where his backbone ought to be,"
and our council ot public instruction
should have nil eye to the future and
make the science of agriculture one
of the chief subjects in Ihe public
school curriculum.
"Then \vc should have no tear tor
our buys and girls being lured by a
super-abundance of classical eiiuca
lion as compared with agricultural,
from the natural pursuit of mankind
in cultivating the soil to the artificial life of the cities. Something
should he done to preserve the
equilibrium and retain a fair share
nf the brains as well as the brawn
ot our population on the land rather
than build up abnormally large
cities "
"Tbe public school currlctiluuis ot
every province of Canada require revising and that speedily. Let educationists a wake to the folly of the
present system and smash these
curriculums right in two with the
one stroke ot tbe sword of public disapproval and place right in tbe center of them the subject of agriculture where it beltings.
"Push from side to side the dead
languages and other kindred subjects,
which have a right to due prominence
in the curriculum of the higher institutes of learning, but which are
only fit for an ornamental border in
that of the public schools. If agriculture is the backbone ol the country, then give it that prominence in
tlie public school curriculum which
tbe importance of tlie subject demands and see that our teachers are
qualified to teach it before granting
them certificates. One of the greatest dangers that threaten the future
of tbe whole Dominion of Canada is
the abnormal growth of the cities at
Ihe expense of the rural communities, and the whole trend of our public school education from one end of
the Dominion to the other, has been
to entice and allure our boys and
girls away from agricultural pursuits
to augment the congestion of the
city communities by creating in the
minds of the young a desire for the
professions only. By giving agriculture and other practical subjects
their proper place in the public school
curriculum you will do much to preserve that equilibrium between tlie
population or the cities and the
country districts, which is at once
the strength and stability of any nation, particularly one such as ours
which is essentially an agricultural
Today week electors of the city of
Cranbrook will he called upon to
elect their council fur the ensuing
year. So far there has been little
or no public discussion of civic affairs and, as yet, there has been no
intimation of any public meeting being held, at which tiie electors will
he given an account of their stewardship by the retiring council and
an outline of their views by candidates for election to the new council. We assume that some such public meeting will be held in the near
future. At tbe present moment it
looks as though there would be a
contest for the mayoralty between
the present incumbent, J. P. Fink,
and former mayor, James Finlay.
There also promises to be contests
for tbe alderinanic positions, though,
s<i far, the new candidates have
not indicated at all definitely their
attitude on civic affairs. On bis
past record and in view of the urgent need of a strong, thoroughly experienced business man at the head
ol amors during the coming year, it
would seem reasonable to assume
that .Mr. J. P. Fink would be reelected mayor on Thursday next by
a very considerable majority, <>f
course Mr, Finlay may have reasons
to advance why be should he given
another term as chief magistrate,
but, as yet, no hint of the grounds
n( his opposition to Mr. -t P. Fink
has been made public. Mr Fink appeals for support upon his past record and upon that record we Imagine it will lie very difficult to delcal

The annual review number of the
Nelson Daily News improves from
year to year and it may fairly tie
said that the latest number, published yesterday, is a decided advance upon all previous efforts. Special prominence is of course given to
tho mining industry and it is satisfactory to note that the value of the
mineral production for IflOfl exceeded
that of 1008 by nearly $1.00,0(10. Tbe
review of the mining industry is, as
heretofore, the work of Mr. K.
Jacobs, than whom there is no more
accurate observer, or better informed
writer on mining topics in the province. Summing up bin long and
careful review, Mr. Jacob says:
"At the opening of 1010 this is the
position: More mines are being worked, more ore is being shipped, mills
and smelteries are being enlarged and
equipped with latest and most efficient plant and machinery, railways
are being extended nnd their transportation facilities enlarged to meet
the increasing demands of an expanding mineral production, and altogether conditions existing and in
prospect and results being achieved
are making for the establishment of
the mining and smelting industries ol
British Columbia upon a wider and
firmer basis than ever before."

This Scotch comedy drama, which
so well combines several of Ian McLaren's best known stories of life in
Drumtochty, is sure to please nil
theatre-goers, especially our Scotch
populace, as it is full of the atmosphere of the thistle, the heather, and
"Dear Auld Scotland.'' The play is
wonderfully true to life in its delineation of Scotch character, such
characters as may even now he
found in country towns in Scotland,
where the Calvanistic doctrines of
redemption and damnation arc lived
up to so closely that domestic ties
are apt to become sacrificed on what
the "unco guid," consider the altar
of religious duty. In Lachlan Campbell Is shown one whose heart is
overflowing with tender love for his
motherless daughter, yet he, in a
moment ot what he deems righteous
wrath, drives her from his home, and
struggling against his fatherly affection tries to make himself believe
that his act was that of a just and
God-tearing man. He is trunsformed
from an ascetic and literal believer
in the Calvanistic interpretation of
the Scriptures to one who after all
sees some good in the Golden Rule.
All this is very beautifully brought
out in the play. The comedy element in the piece is strong and persistent. Its chief exponent is Pos-
tie, whose droll philosophy and witticisms arc an excellent foil (or the
most serious portions of the play
The company this season is all that

To the man who wishes to make a
business of poultry-raising, to raise
Buperior birds from a commercial
standpoint, British Columbia oilers
Inducements such as few other provinces in tlie Dominion. To such persons us wish to enter such a business, it is advisable that they start
in a small, Inexpensive way, and as
success is met with, the business
and    the    plant    may he enlarged,
There are many different kinds id
machines used for ha telling eggs.
They are nearly all constructed on
similar principles ami along the same
lines. Machines Which are giving
the best satisfaction arc the hot air
and the hot water machines. The
hot air machines are of the radiant
diffusive, and a combination of the
radiant and diffusive types. Some
of the machines have an tip-draft
circulation of air, while in others
other means of ventilation are employed. .Many manufacturers semi
out moisture pans with their Incubators, while others do not advise the
use of moisture.
The best place for an incubator is
one where there are no draughts of
air, and yet where the air of the
room is absolutely pure at all
times. It is desirable to have an
even temperature in the room, although throughout the greater part
of the province such precautions need
not he taken as in the east, since
the climatic conditions at hatching
time arc not very changeable. The
fact may here be mentioned that
success with hatching chicks depends
to a large extent upon the method of
handling the incubator the first week
of incubation.
The Incubator should bo started for
a day or so before the eggs are plated in the egg chamber, so that an
even temperature of from Hilt tn in.i
ilcgnvs may be readilv maintained
In di Here til localities and in different
seasons nf the year a shghtly different temperature will he found most
desirable The exact position of tin
thermometer has a great deal ot
influence upon the degree of heat in
the egg chamber. In some makes ol
incubators the bulb of the thermometer is placed in an artificial egg.
while in other makes a hanging thermometer is provided.
Tl.e eggs require to be turned frequently—a few poultrymen claiming
that once a day is sufficient, while
others claim that twice a day is
none toti often. It is imt known
exactly bow many times each day a
lien will naturally turn her eggs, but
it is known that in artificial incubation the eggs are not turned nearly
as frequently. The purpose ol turning the eggs is to prevent the embryo in thi' egg from sticking to the
shell, for should the embryo become
stuck to the shell growth would be
la every fertile egg there Is life
Which requires oxygen for its continued existence, .lust as with us in
everyday life, so with the embryo
within the shell, oxygen is absorbed
ami carbon dioxide is thrown ofl
This being the case, the Circulation
of nir through the Incubating chamber should be rapid enough to supply
sufficient oxygen, and also to remove
the gases given oil from the living
embryo. On the other hand, the
circulation of nir should not he too
rapid, as in that case too much
moisture might htt carried away from
the eggs. Egg shells are pomus,
and they allow Ihe watery contents
of the egg to evaporate slowly. If
the evaporation of the water is too
excessive the hatch will he injured,
and to overcome this difficulty many
incubators use moisture pans On
the other hand, If the eggs do not
lose enough moisture, Hit hatch     is
apt to he pour and the chicks   may
be  weak.
Al hatching time the temperature
should he carefully watched. The
heat given of! from the body of the
clucks will tend to raise the temperature of the egg chamber ami the
i lucks may pant. If they pant,
either the lamp should he lowered or
more air should he admitted. A
BUddcn lowering of the temperature
at hatching time is apt to injure the
chicks. It is gem-rally best to allow nil the chicks to remain in ihe
Incubator for at least twenty-four
hours, the temperature being lowered
gradually to 05 degrees.

Tl TE BY   T. S, (111,1..
Ladles ami Gentlemen:
The papet Unit 1 have prepared for
this meeting tonight is Intended to
show the relation ol tho honey hee
tapis mcllltlca or hive lice) to the
production ol crops, not particularly
as a honey producer, but a service n
thousand times more important tn
the farmer, the nartlener nnd the
fruit grower. In the first part I
shall try to show you the scientific
principle ol fertilization, that which
the plants are dependent upon lor
the life principle of the seed, thus
the propagation of species. The
second part deals with the work the
honey hee performs in helping nature
to fulfil its law of the cross pnllini/-
atiou ol Dowers. In flowers there
are parts analgous to those indicative ,,f sex in the animal kingdom,
ivvo parts are essential to the reproduction ol    the s I, the pistils   and
stamens. The pistils are composed
ol three parts and usually occupy a
central position in the flower. The
stile is merely the lone neck that
support* the stigma or head. The
ovary is down in the center ol the
dower; inside tho ovary is the
nucleus which is filled with protoplasm (called the mothor cell). In
the nucleus is lound the embryonal
or seed vessicle.
The stigma is situated nn the
top ol Ihe stem, and is covered by a
sticky substance. The stamens arc
usually arranged around the pistil,
often many in number, on the top of
each is a sac or little pouch, inside
ol which is formed the pollen dust.
These, when ripe, burst open, cither
of themselves or by the agency ol
tho wind, and insects anil scatter
tlto pollen all around. The pollen,
sometimes called fertilization dust,
consists of very minute grains of
nitrogenous matter of nearly the
same composition as wheat, pea or
rve Hour, and vary in si/c from
I 2IKI to 1.3000 ol nn inch in diameter, some [lowers, principally
those that depend on tho wind to
distribute it, produce pollen in luge
quantities ami il a hazel bush is
shaken when Ihe pollen is ripe Ihe
golden dust tan he plainly seen fall
inn in a Shower, These flowers, us
ihey may bo called, do not secroto
nectar to at tract insects, but are
furnished with little shelves on which
the pollen collects as the sacs burst
and when stirred by the wind the
dust is blown „it and carried away
to some distance to other plants of
the same kind.
Now, suppose the pistils nnd stamens become ripe at the same time
the pollen sacs break open and scatter the dust, a grain adheres to the
sticky surface ol the stigma, absorbs
moisture and commences to grow,
sends out a tiny tube, which penetrates the stigma and extends away
down to Ihe ovary through the long
stem, through this lube Ihe fertilization subslnnce ol the pollen grain is
In the case of the apple and pear,
which have live separate seed ves-
siclcs, a separate fertilization is
needed for each, or the seed in these
parts would not form, the Iruit
would not he perfect and therefore
valueless for commercial purposes.
Nature has provided that the best
cannot he produced from the above
plan. (That is a flower to be fertilized by pollen produced by the
same (lower or the same plant) and
must he by what is called cross-
pollinated—carried from one plant to
another ol the same kind—in Ihe case
of fruits to another of a different
variety. So a great many flowers
arc arranged so that their pollen
ripens at a time when Ihe pistils are
tiead or vice versa; and again many
apples, pears and plums are utterly
sterile to their own pollen; others
are provided with pistils alono, some
with stamens alone. Some varieties
ol strawberries are of these. Sutne
with pistils and stamens separately
on different flowers ol the same
plant, so arranged as not to ripen
so the pollen cannot fertilize the
flowers containing the pistils. Any
of these flowers could not be fertilized it it were not for some carrying agents. There are a few of
these and the most important being
tlie honey hiv, which brings us to the
second part.
I will not go deeply into hee culture in this paper, only in relation
to the distribution ol pollen Irom

Speaking at the launch ol the
steamship Prince Rupert at Wall-
send, Mr. F. B. Girdlestone, general
manager ol the Bristol dock committee, said he hoped that they Would
shortly have the co-operation of the
Great Western railway ol England
and the Grand Trunk 1'acilic railway
of Canada, for the provision of a service of high speed passenger steamers
between Avniimouth docks and Montreal. It would form the shortest
route hot ween Montreal and London.
Lebanon house, an historic mansion
at Twickenham, was completely gutted liy (ire the other day, and dam-
ago to the extent of over £30,000
was dono to tho valuable fornlture
with which it was stored.
Lebanon house was formerly the
residence of the celebrated Misses
Hyng and Ihe headquarters of Ibo
Whig party in Lord Stafford's lime.
It was occupied for some years by
Prince de Jolnville. Cromwell once
stayed at the house.
Lebanon house has latterly been
used as a furniture store by a Richmond firm.
As the building was slocked trom
basement to roof with furniture, the
ffremen found considerable dilliciilty
in getting at the seat of the trouble,
and the heat ol the conflagration,
which started on tbe ground lloor,
was intense.
One of the features of the registrar
general's report ■ for England and
Wales for 1908 is the evidence it
bears of the alarming increase in
the death rate from cancer. From
0.55 per 1,000 or the population in
the quin-qucnnial period 1881-5, the
rate rose to 0.92 in the year 1008,
the latter being the highest recorded.
An international table of twenty
countries is given in the report, anil
on this the registrar-general says:
"This country occupied an unenviable
position with respect to mortality
from cancer; the rate in England and
Wales being exceeded in only two
European countries—viz., .Switzerland and the Netherlands. .Scotland occupies a slightly better position (fourth) and Ireland, notwithstanding its abnormal age constitution, a much better position (seventh
with a rate of 0.76). In all the
countries from which returns have
been received the proportionate mortality from cancer has shown a general tendency tn increase in recent
One satisfactory feature in the report, however, is that there has been
a cessation of the increase of these
cases among   women under fifty-five.
On the other hand, the death rate
from phthisis in 1908 was slightly
below that of lfl07, when it was the
lowest recorded.
An eminent Lnglishmttu—tho more
to be appreciated that be was English by preference and naturalized—
has passed away in the person of Dr.
Ludwtg Mond. He died at his London residence, after u protracted illness, aged seventy.
He was twenty-three when he came
to England in 1882 from his native
Cassel, in Germany, with the object
of profitably working a process for
the recovery of sulphur from alkali
waste, lie came with a reputation
as a scientist, having been a notable
scholar of the tamed University of
In 187.1, being then naturalized, he,
with Mr. (now Sir John) Hrunner,
perfected n proress for ihe manufacture of ammonia soda, which laid
the foundation of a world-wide business and an enormous fortune.
From a small beginning, Messrs.
Hrunner, Mond, and Co., Ltd,, have
now the largest alkali works in the
world, employing about J,000 work-
men From the outset Dr. Mond
lias been managing director.
His genius is shown by Ihe large
number of important patents lie took
out. These Included processes lor
the manufacture ol ammonia soda.
manufacture of chlorine, recovery ol
ammonia from nitrogenous substances, economical ooniumption nf
Appliances wen- also invented by
bim to ntitain gas and ammonia
similtaiieoiisly from coal—now a rapidly developing industry.
A notable illustration of Ibis is
the installation which the South
Staffordshire Mond Gas company
have erected at Dudley Port (Staffordshire), Whoro the coal is being
converted into sulphate of ammonia
and .Mond gas; Hie latter being distributed to nearly one hundred works
over an extensive area.
With a view lo utilizing gas obtained from coal for the direct production of electricity, Dr. Mond, and
his assistant, Dr. Carl Langer, worked out a new form of gas battery. In
the course of his Investigation with
Messrs. (Quincke nnd Langer he discovered a new seriis of chemical
compounds composed of metals and
carbon monoxide, now known as
metallic carbonyls.
Dr. Mond lectured nn this subject
in 1892 before the royal institution,
and as the further study of one nf
Hip compounds—nickel carbonyls—he
was enabled lo devise a new process
for manufacturing pure nickel from
its ores. This discovery has given
rise to a very important industry,
which was taken up in 1900 by the
Mond Nickel Company, Limited. The
nickel refined at Clydaeh, in South
Wales, controlled by this company,
now produces a gnod pnrtion of the
wnrld's output nf this metal, the applications of which become every day
more extended and important.
Dr. Mond, combining the rare
qualities of scientist and man of
business, derived an enormous income from his various enterprises.
He owned a town house in Regent's
Park. Winnimrtnn Hall in Cheshire, a
palace in Home, and a country place
in Sevenoaks.

Dividends to the workmen at the
rate of nine per cent, in addition to
their wages, is the result of the
first nine months' working of the copartnership scheme instituted by
Sir Christopher Furness. at his West
Hartlepool shipyard. This is an investment for the men's savings—four
times as profitable as the savings
The scheme was started by Sir
Christopher Furness in order to
avoid ihe trade disputes which had
beer so frequent and so ruinous, and
the idea ol giving the men a direct
interest in the prosperity of the
concern was received with hearty cooperation by the workers. It is
considered as established that the
scheme will provide a permanent
guarantee against strikes, which, in
the case of a linn whose contracts
are often time-limited under heavy
penalties, cripple the directors continually.
DDdK the new conditions ol employment. Operation! at the shipyards have proceeded with comfort
to all concerned, and, as a consequence, with results in work highly satisfactory. The board experience satisfaction in making known
the fact that every steamer built and
repaired since the commencement of
the co-pnrtnersliip scheme tins been
delivered in strict accordance with
the terms of the contract.
It may be noted that in a case
where the company undertook to
lengthen a steamer for a valued customer in six weeks, to enable it lo
resume its position by a fixed date
on the line In which it was engaged,
the work was completed in six days
less than the stipulated time. This
is only a sample of the evidence as
to the value of the scheme and of
the loyalty nf the men.
1 The secretary o( the company
now issues a letter to the employe
shareholders, in view of the approaching close of the period for
which the scheme was to be tried,
asking whether it is their desire to
continue it.
The employe shares in the company
arc 50,000 ot £1 each, and assuming
them to be fully paid the dividend
on them for the nine months will he
£3,375. Under the scheme every
employe acquiesced in the regular deduction of five per cent from his pay
until the shares allotted to him were
fully paid.
i   Tbe employes work according    to
taste oatoa regulations tad rata.

! The members of the Homaii Catholic choir gathered at the residence of
.Mr. Alfred Oeiiest on Tuesday evening where they were elegantly entertained at a farewell party extended to Mrs. John J. McDonnell, who
is about to join Mr. John J. McDonnell at the scene of his new appointment with the C. P. R. in Medicine Hat.
Her friends in the choir presented
Mrs, McDonnell with two splendid
pieces of Lihhy cut glass consisting
of a large epergne and salver. These
articles are of tbe very finest class
turned out by this famous linn, which
is renowned all over the world for
ihe beauty of its manufactures.
The presentation, which was made
by Miss .Maggie Kennedy, was    accompanied   by   the    following    address:
Dear Mrs. McDonnell:
The members of the choir of tho
Roman Catholic church of Cranbrook
beg lo express our very deep and
abiding regret thai circumstances
compel your leaving us.
We recognize to our sorrow tho
loss that your splendid musical and
vocal abilities will he to our organ]
/atioti, nor is this regret made the
less poignant that we know another
choir and another church will gain
to tho same extoni that we, most
unfortunately, lo.se.
We ask your kind acceptance of
this little present for memory's
sake, to the end that you may think
of ns when far away as your sincere
friends and admirers.
We wish you in your new home all
manner id human prosperity am)
happine which you most richly
merit by your great courtesy, kindness and earnest warm beartediicss.
Your friends:

After    the   presentation   bad hen
made,  to  which  Mrs.   McDoncll      responded most feelingly and eloquently,  the entire company spent a most
enjoyable    evening with songs     and
music in plenty.
On Thursday night last, at tin' St
Eugene hospital, Edward Lee, one ol
the oldest residents of Moyie, died
after being operated on for strangulated hernia, Mr. Lee was about 06
years or age. He came to Moyie
with his wife about ten years ago
and built a house on Tavistock
street. After living there a few
years he moved to Penticton, hut
returned last March and built u
boarding and lodging house just
south of P. Hums' meat market on
Victoria street. He belonged to the
Masonic order, and was a past master of the lodge at Banff. The funeral took place here on Sunday
under the auspices of the Masonic
lodges of Crant: nk and Moyie.
Mrs. E. Li'', ihe widow, and Mr.
and Mrs. C. Lives ley, a daughter of
the deceased, came up from Moyie

body else, to circulate a report that
the council had paid too much for
tbe water works. I submit tbe following facts for your consideration,
and in taking up this water works
question, our first move was to procure the most capable adviser that
we possibly could. That person was
Mr. John Gait, of Toronto, a man
who is second to none in Canada in
the point of ability and in the number of water works and sewerage
systems he has constructed. He also has an untarnished record, as he
has always done tbe work that be
lias been paid for, and has never been
known to accept a dollar in tbe win
of graft to induce him to put in a
false report. The price paid for
the system was within $200.00 of
Mr. Gait's estimate, and we believe
that any reasonable person will admit that this was the only possible
way that the valuation could be got
at, as there was no member nf the
council who was capable of estimating its value. Mr. Call also .supplied us witb plans and specifications
of a sewerage and srptlo tank s\s-
U»m at an estimated cost of $70.-
ooo on, but there is a portion nf tht
system that would nol be required al
the present tune, and an adcpiat
system could be installed for a mucfc
smaller sum, and 1 believe that the
incoming council should, if taxes
will permit, do something towards
the installation of this system. It
has been stated that Mr. J. C. Mr
Kenzie, superintendent of the water
works, stated that the council paid
about $20,000.00 more than the system is worth. For my own satisfaction 1 sent the following wire:
"Mr. .1. C. McKcnzte, care Municipal
Construction Co.,    Vancouver, B.
Did you state publicly or privately
to any person that we paid twenty
thousand dollars too much for water
works.     Wire answer."
To which I received this reply:
"J. P. Fink, Cranbrook:
I did not state to any one that the
city paid too much for water works.
Consider engineer's valuation (nir to
all patties."
I believe that Mr. McKcnzie is
known to almost every person in
Cranbrook, and I believe that there
is absolutely no fault to he found
with him, therefore I believe that his
statement, in conjunction with that
of a man like Mr. Gait, will be taken
ns final.
I believe I am entitled to a reasonable amount of any good or bad
that may result from the actions of
the council during the past year, ami
in consideration of a petition signed
by a large number of ratepayers of
Cranbrook, I have consented to
again accept   nomination, nnd if yon
