had been those ot political opportunities, the result of the alliance   with,
thc   Nationalists.   The abandonment*
of the   Pacific   fleet unit by Premier
McBride was on a par with this   expediency    and showed a hollow echo-

predominance, but such, happily, had
not yet occurred.     It there was
replaced In time hy a permanent one.
A   voice: "Yes, it the Nationalists
let him."
The speaker stated that that was
the crux ot the situation. Mr. Borden
said tbat it would take trom 25 to 50
years to establish a naval organization. This observation formed indeed a proud boast. The Sout* Americas republics aud small European
countries were developing naval construction for themselves. Even it
shipbuilding cost more Una Iu Great
Britain a start must bo made. Industries employing CatraaV'- labor
should he created. Sor business
would thus he combined h good
policy. The governmei said it
would not go on with the Laurier
programme ot cruisers and torpedo
destroyers because hy the time tbey
were built the vessels would be obsolete, but II that course was adopted In naval construction no country
in the world would venture to build
ships. Only recently a vessel bad
turned out at Seattle for the
United States navy. The speaker '
inquired why the same could not be
done on this side ot tbe line. |
From the standpoint ot tbe British
shipbuilder, it might be better business tor the Dominions to make contributions, but Irom the standpoint
jot developing Canadian industry, enterprise, and self-reliance, it was
not. The Laurier Act had commenced a scheme ot home development, and the otter of the great firm
of Cammell, Laird and Co. to start
in business at St. ,Iohn, N. B., had
come. "At that port there are
great harbor Improvements," the
speaker continued, "and already
there is to be built one ot the largest dry docks in the world, capable
of accommodating tbe largest battleships.
"Right alongside ol this drydock it
is proposed to construct great shipbuilding yards   in conjunction    with
the Norton Qrlfflths company,    contractors lor the drydock, where   the
ships ot tbe   Canadian navy     could
have heen built.    Vidian' Sons and
.Maxim had    recently placed in position the great drydock at Montreal.
On the Pacific  coast  tbe    country
must be ready lor a change In     the
international    relations   ot   Japan,
which was now the ally, but   might
become the enemy ot Great Britain."
Answering the  contention that Canadians    could not man the vessels,
Mr. Macdonald said it had been    estimated that 5,000 men would be   required.      Admiral      Klngsmlll   had
stated that   recruiting bad suttered
lor the   Rainbow and NHobe because,
tho young men attracted bad     come
trom interior provinces and Irom the
cities, and    were unsuited tor naval
service.      Owing to the uncertainty
as to tbe future policy there had not
heen tbat encouragement to enter the
service which ought to exist.
They had    as yet made no attempt
to reach tbe fishermen ol the eastern
provinces, of  whom there was about
80,000, or those  ot this coast.      In
this    connection    Mr.   Bowser   had
promised   tbe replacement ot Japanese fishermen by white men so    tbat
the field for recruiting would be    increased rather than diminished.  The,
naval question had been made a political football since 1909, and    while
there had been a number ot desertions
trom    the training ships, there  had
been lew    compared witb the desertions trom  their opinions of Conservative speakers    on  this   important
and vital subject. Given but security
of policy, there would be no difficulty
in manning    the  fleet.     The whole
naval policy ot   the present administration came    down to a neglect of
the admiralty policy ot policing    thc
trade routes.    Canada's duty in this
regard was to have fleet units on the
Atlantic and Pacific oceans.    In the
latter    connection Sir Richard    McBride had    shown himselt a political
weather-vane of a most illusive type.

in the proposition, in view ot the
near approach of the municipal elections.

Cranbrook, in its infancy, has established a segregated   district,    which
have been abolished   In Calgary, Ed-

Notwithstanding the large amount
of railway construction in Canada
during thc past year, there is eeery
indication of quite as much being
done tiuriiiK the present year. This is
the opinion of Sir Thomas Shaugh-
nessy. This will mean, be says, a
great deal for tbe country because,
besides giving employment to many
thousands of men in tbe making ol
railways, it naturally stimulates
I manufacturing in the rail mills, iron
land steel works, lumber mil's and a
large number of other establishments,
and keeps tbe wheel of national prosperity spinning. The rail requirements nf the Canadian Pacifk rail-
way for the next year, will approximate 250,000 tons, and these, witb
the requisite fastenings, will represent an expenditure of over 18,000,-
During the past \ear in addition to

David Lloyd George and other in-
fluential supporters of "votes for

Mt likely to meet with favor. In

croposes introducing the Norwegian

gives the votes to women householders and the wives of electors. As

CRANBROOK, B. C, Jaiairy Ii. WI3
Tlie Herald must congratulate the
liti/.ens of Cranbrook upon the outcome of yesterday's municipal campaign. It was one of the most vigorously contested in the city's history, although no public meetings
were held. Whilst Mr, Howness was
re-elected hy such a majority as
amply testified to the lii^h esteem in
which he is held hy the citizens rcii-
crally, his opponent, Mr, W. S.
Santo, made a very creditable allowing. Despite some silly, and rather
vulgar cartoons, issued hy the Santo
committee, nothing objectionable
arose throughout the campaign, Ihe
best nf feeling prevailing among the
workers of the respective candidates.
11 was a stiff, hard fought, manly
campaign, creditable to all concerned, and, we think, it will have to be
conceded hy all eoncerned, that tlie
city's best interests wore served in
re-electing Mayor Howness and the
six aldermen, who will make up his
council, two of whom have had considerable experience already as aldermen, Messrs. Lester Clapp and (■■
Krickson The other four are new
l.o the administration of civic affairs, but their own records as business men, in their respective occupations, have gained for them the
confidence of their fellow citizens,
and we believe it will not he misplaced.
It was a good light from start to
finish, probably the most strenuous
iu Cranbrook's corporate history.
The outcome, we believe, will prove
satisfactory, even to tlie strongest)
supporters of the Santo ticket. Generally speaking, the fight was honestly waged for what the Santo
people declared a more cllicient, more
popular, and more economical .administration. However, despite very
active, well organizer! work on their
pari, under the generalship of Mr. W.
II. McFarlane, tbey failed to make
that decisive impression on the electorate, which alone could oust a man
oi the great popularity nf las]
year's mayor. Mr. A. C. Howness
was re-elected by a substantial majority upon his past record, and the
candidates on his ticket for aldermen
were also largely elected on the
same grounds, including not only the
aldermen, who were seeking re-election, but the new men as well.
The polling of votes was carried
on all day in tlie most active und
enthustastie manner. Both sides
had a large number nf sleighs in
operation, which were kept on the.
run until the last minute. Notwithstanding some strong sentiments aud
;i certain amount of ill-feeling occasioned hy the publication of sonic
objectionable campaign cartoons, by
the Santo committee, thc best of
good feeling prevailed throughout the
day's canvass, and at the close of
Ihe polls, after several hours spent
in cheeking up the votes, it was a
mutually congratulatory assemblage,
Ihe winners modestly accepting their
new honors, and the losers showing
good sportsmanlike spirit iu the way
they took their defeat.
From nn independent observer's
point, of view, the keen contest cannot fail to have a good efTect upon
the future civic administration. No
one would pretend that there have
not been both neglect in some particulars, and a lack of close attention to business principles in other
directions. The   publicity   given
these points, whilst tbey failed to
make sufficient impression on the
great majority of the electors, will,
undoubtedly, have been taken to
heart by those to whom the citizens have entrusted the administration of their affairs during     the
ensuing year, Mayor Bowness and Iris
full aldermauic slate, being elected
by substantial majorities, us follows:
A. C. Howness  278
W. S. Santo  157
Majority for Howness  131
Lester Clapp  256
C. R. Ward  213
G. K. Lcask  225

F. Genest  199
M. Horie  188
11. Hickenbotham  176
.1. B. Hall  173
.1. T. Sarvis  150
It will he noted that Lester Clapp,
who polled the heaviest vote for
alderman on the Howness ticket, had
a lead of 57 votes over the highest
man, F. Dezall, on thc Santo ticket;
also that .1. K. Kennedy, low man
on the Howness ticket, had a lead of
13 over the low man on the Santo
ticket, .1. T. Sarvis. A total of
■134 ballots were polled, among which
there weere 17 spoiled ballots for
School Trustees, four for mayor and
8 for aldermen.
The total vote polled is the heaviest since 1911, when the total votes
counted was 447.
.1. P. Fink  : 293
H. White  271
■L Laurie  255
II. A. McKowan  193
It will be noted that Mr. .1. I'.
Fink, polled 15 more votes than [ell
lo mayor Bowness. Mr. H. White
came second with a vote of 271, a
result iu wiiich everyone Interested
in the city's -public schools will rejoice over, for Mr. White has served
the hoard tor several years with thc
most praiseworthy and self-sacrificing efforts.
L. W. Donaboe, erstwhile postmaster at Wardner, has been given the
bounce to make room for an active
Tory partisan. No complaints alleged against Donnhoe were ever investigated. He simply had to go,
after years of faithful service because thc local Tories could not
stomach a Liberal in office. Borden's
pre-election talk of purity in elections was as cold a piece of bunkum
as any politician in Canada ever put
up on the electorate.

Average price received for eggs,
lie. per dozen. For the same period last year, the eggs in Vancouver
averaged 70c. per dozen. The first
three cratet supplied to the reputed
leading fancy grocer here, realized
38c. per dozen. A better customer
has since been secured. During this
period packed eggs were retailing at
35c. to 40c. per dozen. Wholesale
complaints have been received from
local poultrymcn relating to this
matter. From a perusal of the
above figures, it ran be easily seen
who is getting the cream nt the profits in the egg business,
Tbe Or St month's yield exceeded
last year's total for the same period
by no less than B10 eggs, the exact,
figures being: last year 717 eggs, aud
1327 eggs during the past month.
In accounting for the belter showing this year, much of ihe credit is
rightly due the owners of competing
pens. Much better judgment has
been used this year in,selecting pullets. At this period last yeur, no
less than nearly a do/en .pens were
moulting, caused by sending pullets
which were in full lay at time ot
shipping. This year the only, feathers noticed In litter are chick-fenth-
Better housing arrangements have
also assisted, The weather has not;
been very propitious. On account of
this, the birds have only been allowed oat on one *t two occasion!. Tbo.
additional flour space provided this
year, together witli better Hglit and
ventilation, lias helped considerably.:
Given plenty of pen-room, together
with a palatable ration, green foodj
plenty of water and exercise, fowls
will thrive, and prove more profitably
than those allowed out iu all weathers.
In Class 1 the following pens started to lay on dates enclosed in parentheses: Pens 5 and in (14th); J and
12 (18th); 3 (21st); 11 (27th).
The occupants of pen S, owing to
their youth, have grown considerably
during the month, and greatly relish
the dry mash.
Pen 10 was received several days
late, owing io another competitor
fulling to forward birds.
Quite a few tinted eggs are laid by
several pens in class 1.
Pen 12 lays good-sized egiis, by
no means the smallest iu the class.
In class 2 the following pens started to lay on dates given after pen
number: Pen 29 (Ifith); 33 and 39
(18th); 35 (20th); 21 (2lst); 37
(23rd); 21 and 31 (20th); 34 (27th);
32 (30th).
Pens 2ti and 21 produce exceedingly
large eggs. Three pens have not
laid yet in Ibis class. Pen 28 lias
developed considerably during the
Rations: Mornings and evenings,
fed in litter. Dry mash in hopper
mixture of half corn aud half wheat,
consists of ground grains in following proportions : 42.1 lbs. oats, 42|
lbs. middlings, and 15 lbs. beef,
Three times weekly, a wet mash is:
fed in the morning, composed as
follows: By weight, one part middlings, 1-2 part ground oats and 20
per cent milk albumen added.

Chronic Coughs and Colds.
Strong, vigorous men and women
hardly ever catch cold, it's ouly when.
the system is run down and vitality
Uiw that colds and coughs gel a fool-
Now isn't 'it reasonable that the
right way to cure a cough Is to build
tip your strength again?
Mrs. Olivia Parham, ot East Dur-
ham. N. C.( says: "I took Vinol for a
chronic cough which had lasted two
years, and the cough not only disappeared, but it built up my strength
as well."
The reason Vinol is so efficacious In
such cases Is because It contains in a
delirious concentrated form ail tbe
medicinal cvative elements or cod
liver oil, with tonic, blood-bull ding
Iron added. (
Chronic coughs and colds yield to
Vlnol because it builds up the weakened, run-down system.
You ran get your money back any
time If Vlnol does not do all we say.

Immediately upon facing, Ayre secured for Elko, and after a brilliant effort succeeded in scoring   the
first for the home team.
On    resuming   it    was   found that
llergquist, of   Waldo,    would      have
to retire, and Sinclair, of Elko, was
laid off to equalize.     Upon play commencing,  '''Doc" obtained possession,
and made a fast allot, but the Waldo
| tender   was on     his job,     P. McKee
| then secured, and   after a nice    run
succeeded in again scoring    for    thc
: Wallopers.    Waldo had all the say in
'the game, for a    while, and      three
! more guals were notched.     Ayre and
'IL  Todhuntcr   worked well together
and put in some splendid shots     hut
I the Waldo    goal   lender knew      just

Vyre, who scored the second for   the
home team.     Following some     good
play hy .1. Hume, Carmody took     a
hand and  scored.     Following     some
decidedly  "scrappy" play, Ilirtz and
\yre again     came into the limelight
and gave the Waldo tender some very
heavy    work, but he seemed to      be
out    for the     occasion   and   nothing
happened.     Elko was having a little
more say in   the game at this stage,
and play was kept in   Waldo half for
a few   minutes, and the whistle blew
'just as Ilirtz   seemed about to      re-
| -;ister.
"Doc" started the puck going on
j resuming by a good fast shnt, but
again failed to add the point, and
when H. Hume took |iie pass there
was nothing else to do but give the
goal. This was merely a start for
the "Light" Hume who promptly
rattled up another brace.
By this time the "Wallopers" took
things tlieir own way, amid easy
play .1. Hume secured and toted up
the dozen. Gpon resuming, "Doc"
again endeavored to score, but there
was "nothing doing" in that line at
the time. .lust before the whistle
sounded .1. Hume again scored, and
the game finished quietly. The visitors expressed themselves as well
satisfied" with their score, IS—2, and
announced their intention of trying to
get an open date with the Winnipeg
Victorias, which they confidently expect will be granted. We of Elko
wish them every success.

Ottawa advices are lo the effect
that there will be several changes ol
far-reaching import in the tariff at
the coming sessions of the Dominion
parliament. With regard to lumber
duties, it is intimated that in connection with the general tariff an-
pithcr body of representatives visited
the capital shortly after the government came lo power. These represented the Hritish Columbia lumber
interests, who demanded that in connection with the entry ol rough lumber free Irom the United States to
Canada a new interpretation be placed upon the item which covered it,
and the class of lumber entered under these items be restricted. The
present interpretation, which had obtained for the post fifteen years, was
contended by these representatives
lo be wrong. Under it rough lumber which had been "sited" constituted an extra process, it was considered that this should be construed as a further manufacture. Instead ot giving a ruling thc government decided to shift the responsibility by malting a reference to
the. exchequer court. Here Mr. Justice t'assells ruled that "sizing" did
constitute further manufacture, and
that such lumber as was sized
should be dutiable. Tbe case went
further to the supreme court, and
there the decision of the exchequer
was reversed, and tne interpretation
of the late government justified.
There has been considerable talk ot
tlie 11. ('. lumbermen taking the case
still further to the judicial committee of the Hritish privy council, hut
this, so far as is known, has not yet
lieen done, and the impression is
Blowing at the capital that it Is thc
intention of the government to restrict the interpretation to suit the
lumber interests by means of legislation. In any case it is expected that
the question will come up in tbe budget speech ol the minister.

on to the floor, broken and the dirt
trodden into tne carpet. She immediately rushed out of the house to secure assistance iu setting up the
stove. Outside she met a hoy named
, Ralph Laurie, who was driving in a
rig with his mother. She asked for
assistance- and .he volunteered to
come in-     I port their   return tn tbo
house, Mrs. Cockshutt walked
straight into her kitchen, and there,
another scene ot disaster confronted
her gaze. In tbe first place a drunken -Japanese was standing in the
pantry, aimlessly watching her movements, apparently too drunl.i tit make
a move of any kind. She then discovered that ber dinner dishes had
all been thrown on the floor, ber preserves, pickles, etc., had also all
been thrown on the floor, the bottles
and jars broken and the contents
trod into the floor. Thc Japanese
made no move and Mrs. Cockshutt
returned to the sitting room to ask
young Laurie to expel him from the
house, which Laurie very happily
and expeditiously complied with.
A little later Sheriff Morris put in
an appearance and captured the Japanese, and drove him down to the
jail, in his buggy, with a big man
holding him In the seat, Monday afternoon Shimamotu, the Japanese,
appeared before His Honor Judge
Kyan, and the whole story was carefully gone over, by witnesses on both
sides. In the outcome, his honor
expressed the opinion that a fine of
$20 lo be paid to Mrs. Cockshutt,
the payment of costs, a $10 fine and
that he be immediately interdicted,
would pretty well satisfy tlie needs
of the case.

Mr. P. Astridge, ol 3 St. Paul St.,

anything to get relief. It was useless, however, and 1 almost gave up
in despair.
"One day ;i friend gave tne ■•

decided to try Zam-Buk, and the re-

a week-end speech at Burton, made
reference to the Canadian Dreadnoughts and said the acceptance by

public opinion in Canada, it had been

New Yorv,   .Ian. 14,—There is now

Fernie, B, C, Jan, LL—Last
Thursday afternoon at about 3.30
o'cloek a train of fifteen cars loaded
witb slack from the Coal Creek mines ol tlie Crows Nest Pass Coal company, ran away on tbe Morrissey.
h'ernie and Michel railway, which
connects tho mines with the town ot
Pernio, killed one man, David Paton,
of Fernie, instantly, and injured at
least two others.
The train left tbe mines as usual
with about lf» cars of slack, and almost immediately after it -started on
it's live mile journey to tbe slack
bins at Fernie ihe icy condition of
tlie rails caused thc wheels to slip
and the brakes were useless to slop
the on-rushing mass of probably WU)
ions of weight. When the eastern
extremity of the yards was reached
the fatality occurred.
Engineer .lames Falconer, who was
bringing down the load, bad run bis
engine up to Coal Creek and as
there is no turn table there, was
running down with the tender ahead.
As the speed of the train speedily increased, in spite of the fact that tbe
engineer had bis engine reversed, tlie
crew saw that it was useless to slay
with il. and Fireman Morgan John,
.jumped just before Ihe engine reached the yards. When tlie brakeman
saw the fireman jump be realized
that there was no hope of stopping
tin- train and took chances. At the
same time, David Paton, who lost
his life, took tbe leap, rolling under
tbe wheels, and wtis instantly killed,
tbe whole top of bis bead being
torn off. A moment later the tender lefl tbe rails at the curve below
the crossing and Engineer Falconer,
who bad stuck to bis post, was
thrown through the cab window
clear of the engine, and landed in the
snow unhurt.
An engine lielonging to the fireat
Northern railway, which bad been
borrowed a couple of days ago by the
Morrissey. Fernie and .Michel rail- ]
way, was standing on the track at l
.the water tank with Engineer Walter
Bergman and Fireman Griffiths on
board.        Seeing the Hying train ap- ;

With this difficulty cleared away, It

of aboul fifty feet.      It is estimated   fore   official negotiations are      con-
thai tbe train must have boon going

There is no doubt that the depth
of the snow saved the lives of three
men.     The dead     man, David Paton,
eluded, local yachtsmen believe It is
virtually certain the race will be
held. It was not so long ago that
Mr. Allom had luncheon with several
sailors at the New York Yacht club,
and whatever may have taken    place
under which the races should be suit
ed. This was taken by many to
mean tbe elimination of Sir Thomas
Liptou from tbe Ueld as a probable
competitor. An individual, of
course, cannot challenge for the
America's cup. It must come
through some regularly organized
yacht club. In this case it is assumed it will come through the

Interviewed by the Calgary Herald
F. M. Black, tbe manager of p.
Hums and Company, Limited, stated
that the combined loss of stock and
building would amount to about one
million dollars. This was fully covered by insurance.
"All our stock will be taken care
:d this week," be remarked, "as we
have ample cattle on band in close
proximity to Calgary which can be
drawn on at any time. In addition to
what facilities we retain here, our
Vancouver packing house will take
cure of our business in British Columbia, so there wl'l be no cessation
of business whatever.
No," said Mr. Black, "tbe lire
will not affect tlie price of beef; and
as I have already said we have ample
reserves to fail back upon."
In reply to a query Mr. Black stat-
d that there would be about four
thousand carcasses of beef destroyed,
n addition to several thousand sheep,,
some cured meats, butter, eggs and
poultry. Owing to the general upset that prevailed at that time Mr.
Black could not give any detailed
statement outside of the beefs,
Mr. Black complained bitterly ot
the water supply, which he remarked
was vorv inefficient,

"There has seldom been in the
province of Ontario a stronger or a
super reform sentiment of any kind
than that which is demanding tbe
differential ion between individually-
created value and socially-created
value, and the use of the latter as
the legitimate basis of taxation. It
is a principle which is as irresistible
as science and as compelling as common sense. A moment's candid consideration will convince of the validity of the new position. And apparently a great many people have been
giving themselves the benefit of this
consideration, with tho result as

the members ol the legislature. His
blunt refusal in no sense 'saved Hie
