Employment Outside Province
If the chief place of business of the
employer and the residence of the
workman Is in the province and the
usual place of employment of the
workman Is In the province, but if for
a period of less than six month he Is
employed outside the province, lie will j
be entitled to compensation. A similar :
clause applies to accidents which hap'

each of these cases of drunkenness

bottles of liquor on Saturday night.

Both artists were enthusiastically encored by the very critical audience
you, and it seems even longer than
that since 1 wrote you. Well old friend,
I'm still alive and kicking after 18
months In France. Are you still at
the Royal? I guess things ure very
quiet all over Canada just now. This
ormy of hers is draining her pretty
badly Just now. It will be some time
before the country gets over it. I'm
afraid Canada is too patriotic—she Is
giving rather more than she is able to,
to the old country.
often wish I were back at the old
Royal. I enjoyed myself pretty well
there, and often think of the good
times I had; B. C. looks good to me.
Saw Ted MacDonald n couple of weeks
ago; ho is In tho 2nd CM. It. They
relieved our boys for a spell in the
trenches. Guess most of the Cranbrook boys have left; of course there
are always plenty lumberjacks around
town. I believe BUI John is in England. I would like to sec him; I wns
certainly surprised when ho Joined Up,
as he called me a fool when I joined.
and perhaps he was right.
Well old boy, things are pretty quiet
on our front at present but the artill-:
ery Is very active on both sides, but:
we have got the Germans beaten now;
we throw over five snells to tlieir one. |
They are making quite n determined,
attack on Verdun, but the French havc
tliem pretty well In hand. These guns
they call the 75's aro wonderful guns,
they flre so rapidly. Tliey are just
splendid for advancing infantry. I
mean for mowing tliem down, and they
are so simple and light.
Wfc have had terribly cold weather
this laBt month, In fact ft has snowed
most of the month.   The worst winter
they have had here for years.   It's an
awful country for rain, the mud   Is
knee deep and some of the roads ure
awful;   it  rains  practically  nil    the!
winter.   It Ib a lovely day to-day nnd
the aeroplanes are very active, also >
onr artillery.    We ace quite a  few
battles ln air between our men and the
Germans;  tt ts quite exciting.    Our;
boys have tlie advantage, but of course
they never use Zeppelins around here, j
Our anti air-craft guns are firing on
a German monoplane while I am writ-
ing this to you.   He is beating It back
to his own lines.
The States are keeping out of it
fairly well, but I see old Teddy Roosevelt Ib quite keen on war. However It
would not help ub very much if they
declared war on Germany, I mean in a
military sense, as their army is not up
to much, although they are increasing
We all wish the German fleet would
come out. The boys in blue would
give the world for a cnance at the
Germans. This patrol work is pretty
monotonous to them. We have a tremendous fleet now, far stronger then
when the war commenced. You hear
all kinds of rumors about the duration
of the war, but I don't think anyone
can tell. Believe me, we all wish it
finished now. However, this summer
ought to give ub an idea how the Ger
mans stand. They are throwing their
men away recklessly on the western
front. Our front ls Impregnable to
any attack tlie enemy wish to make. I
wish we had a chance of open warfare*,
this trench life Is not up to much,
where an advance is counted In inches
or yards, Instead of miles, but we
might have a chance this summer.
I hardly ever see n Canadian paper
and I miss the coast hockey matches
very much. Hope you will write me
a long letter giving me all the news
We certainly look forward for the mall
out here. I believe the Craubrook
people sent a parcel to each of us out
here; If they did, I did not see anything of a parcel, however, I should
worry. Kindly remember me to all
friends ln town.
Your old friend,
Dave MacLennoii.

was   synonymous   with   placer   gold
mining and more hitciy Terry Creek,
and fabulous sums of gold have been
taken out of tin* betM ot these creeks.
There is. hovowor, an old channel of
Wild Horse Creek,  which has long
Im ni the Biibject of Bench, and which,
if found, is likely to yield further big
returns of the genuine placer gold.
The present bunks of perry Creek contain more or less gold which though
not rich enough to pay big returns
on the ordinary method of placer mining may. it   is   believed,   pay   well,
through hydraulic mining.    A  local i
company lias been formed to under-

Mr. Zutigwill's Intimation that it
would be well for the formal exodus
of Jews from Europe, which he h:

With the production of "The White
Feather" at the Auditorium theatre
here on Saturday, April 22, local
theatre patrons are promised tae most
novel drama that has eve.- beeu
orought to Canada.
The most dramatic feature of the
great World War that has been placed before the eyes of the world was
brought about In the early stages of
thc war by the exposure of tlio German espionage System
Thc publishing daily of thc exploit;
of the German spies in Kngland
brought about gradually the realization by the Brltlsn populace that the
extent of the system was much greater than had ever been comprehended.
The light of exposure was thrown on
a vast conspiracy by hundred:* of German workers in an effort to keep their
own country advised of important diplomatic mores by Britain.
Then followed wholesale persecution and Imprisonments, the details
of which wlll not be made known until long after the war has become history. Slowly but surely the British
hand of Justice .reached out and wiped hte blight of espionage from the
British Isles.
Largely responsible for the stirring
of feeling against the German suspects lo the Old Country was the
spectacular play "The Man Who Stayed at Home." When first presented In
London the spectators were struck
dumb. They wouldn't believe thnt
such things as were portrayed through
the play could be enacted In real life.
'The White Feather," our coming
production, ls the same play. The
same sensation that has been caused
In Britain Ib being extended to Canada.
Judging by newspaper critics
throughout the West, the forthcoming
engagement of "Floradora" at tlie
Auditorium Theatre on Tuesday, May
2nd, will be the biggest theatrical
event ever staged In this city. The
"News-Advertiser", a leading Vancouver Dally, in reviewing the show, says,
"The performance of "Florodora"
which was given last night at the
Avenue Theatre by the well known
and ever popular Versatiles under the
direct supervision of F. Stuart-Whytc,
was greeted last night by an enthusiastic audience. There Is a wealth df
pretty girls beautifully costumed lu
gowns of latest designs whose voices
were heard to good advantage In the
catchy choruses of the comedy. The
leading rolea wre takn by Miss Zara
Clinton as Lady Holyrood, Miss Lor-
rain Mitchell as Dolores, J. V. Bar-
rett-Lennard as Cyrus Gllfaln the perfumer. Mr. Donald Gray aa Frank
Abercoed, and Mr. Edgar Mayrlck as
"The comedy is In two acts with
{appropriate and special scenery features. Tht flrst scene represents a
small Island'In the Philippines, while
the second displays a castle in Wales.
The entire setting Is very appropriate.
"Miss Ethel Hendron, • well-known
violinist, rendered several selections
during the intermissions, and her skill
as a violinist waa shown to great advantage. Taking the performance as
a whole It ranks rlgh among the musical comedies beard In this city for
many months."
Kaster service is going to be u great
day at the Baptist Church.    At the I
morning service, which will begin at [
11 o'clock, the ordinances of Baptism
und the Lord's Supper will be admin-
fstered.    The choir will also render

in the Cranbrook area.   Pages 147-8-9:
Placer Gold
"Placer deposits have been an important source of gold ln East Kootenay district, hut during the last few
years the only activity haB been od
Perry Creek. Cold has been obtained
out of several creeks, the most Important being Perry Creek, Palmer Bar,
Moyle River and Weaver Creek. Prom
an examination of the tables given
in the introduction to the chapter on
economic geology, some Idea of the
importance and history of the production can he determined.
"The gold in tlu* placer deposits Is
evidently derived from the gold quartz
veins which occur in tlie Aldridge, but
more particularly hi the Creston formation. Free gold has been found ln
the weathered outcrops of these veins
on Perry Creek, wliere they reach a
width of 20 feet. It might be recorded
that thc valley walls of Perry Creek,
the richest placer gold creek within
the Cranbrook map-area, contain the
greatest number of gold quartz veins.
Detailed Description of Properties
"As only one property was in operation at the time-of tiie writer's visit
and very little Information could be
obtained at that time, the following
description ts quoted from the Annual
Report of the Minister of Mines for
BrltlBh Columbia, 1903:
Terry Creek Hydraulic Mining Co.'
" 'The 'Falls' occur in a canyon
which cuts through a bluff of rock,
the old channel of the stream apparently having passed on one side of this,
and certainly on the right bank of the
creek there is an old gravel channel
on which, at the level of the creek,
below the Falls, a tunnel (the old
Montezuma tunnel) was driven in for
from 1,000 to 8,004) feet, with certain
workings In connection therewith of
which no plan Is known to exist.
Whatever the course of this old channel may have been, it apparently emptied Into the present creek below Uie
Falls, as the old drifting proposition
mentioned proved, and this work also
proved that there is a pay streak which
according to 'old time miners,' was not
down to bed or even rimrock, as bedrock was never reached by the tunnel.
While there is unquestionably gold ln
such old channel, the paystreak was
either not sufficiently defined.or not
rich enough to pay ns a drifting proposition after It reached such considerable distance from the surface. That
the gold in this old channel ls not confined to bedrock, was demonstrated by
the old channel workings In the frst
place, while later prospecting' work
has revealed two or three pa j streaks
In thc overlying hank, not rich enough
for drifting but sufficiently so.to Induce a company to attempt to hydraulic the whole bank. This company
is the Perry Creek Hydraulic Mining
Co., a syndicate formed of United
States capital. The company has secured water rights on Perry Creek,
taking water from the stream about
4 miles above the Falls, and having
I under construction a wooden flume,
I 4 feet wide by 3 feet high, built of 1>4
'inch lumber. To cut this lumber the
1 company had erected a sawmill at
Sawmill Creek, and hnd a contract for
I 300 M. feet of logs ot $4 per M.
*"The bank representing the face of
[thin old channel lias been cleared of
timber to Its summit. This hank Is
about 400 feet high and Is composed
lof flne gravel, -lit and some clay,
which will wash cheaply and quickly,
put will have to be handled very cure-
: fully as It has a tendency to 'slide', a
thing which, if It occurs, will choke
the canyon and interrupt operations
for some time. Hydrnullcing operations
should beeln In the snrlng of 1901 and
with Judicious handling tho property
him a good chnnce of becoming a pro-
duotng mine this next season.
"'Above the Falls the old channel
Is deep and several attempts have
bf*nn mnde to test nnd work it by
me-in* of shafts sunk in the early 90's;
but, while gold has been found, these
operations nave not been commercial
suroecRcs. In tlie stream bed thero
is a clay or 'falne' bedrock, on which
eel-] In naylng oimntltles haa been
obtained nt several points'."
Tn the year 189*3 William A. Carlyle,
one of thc most eminent mineralogists
nf modern times, filled the position of.
Provincial Mineralogist In BrltlBh Colombia. Ho afterwards was General
Manager of the famous Le Rol Mine
at Rossland, B.C., nnd developed that
property Into the largest single producer of copper and gold In the Dominion of Canada. He Is now In charge
of the Rio Tlnto copper mines In
Spain, which havo been worked almost from the dawn of history* It la
certain that the Phu-nlc.au, Cartitt-
genlans and Romans resorted to them
for their supplies. They still continue
to supply a large percentage of the
world's output.
In his report to the Minister of
Mines for the year 1896, Mr. Carlyle
says, referring on page 523 to:
The Invlcta Gold Mining (Placer) Co*
Limited, England.
"This English Company having secured about one mile along Wild
Horse Creek, from which much gravel
has been washed during the last thirty
yearB, during the pant season began

of a requisite plant, sluices, etc., for
the hydrnullcing of thc large bank of
gravel shown in the engraving, but us
there had been a long delay In the
transportation of piping, monitors, etc.
but little washing could bc attempted
during the soason, although about 70,-
000 cubic yards were moved, that
yielded, according to the annual report of this company, 7 cents per yard.

Dear air: —
ln reiily to ymir letter of the 16th
Inst., I find that the Report of the
Minister of Mines for 1898, at page
1026, states as follows:
"The bed of Wild  Horse Creek, for
some miles above Brewery Creek, 1ms
[produced very large quantities of placer gold, estimated at $:!o.ooo.ouo, and
has been the scene of successful operations BlnCQ the early "flO'B," and Is
j still a producer."
Thc Government Gold Commissioner
ln those days received, or was supposed to receive, fifty cents on each
ounce of gold won from the gravels,
ond presumably tlie above estimate
was founded on the amount on which
this royalty, or duty, was actually collected. The amount, however, on which
no such royalty was paid must have
at leant, equalled that in which the
rights of the Government  were  re-
pany to pay to any person in consideration of his subscribing or agreeing
to subscribe, whether absolute or conditional, for any shares in the company, a commission of fifteen per cent.
4. The first directors of the company shall be:—
who shall hold office until the Ordinary General Meeting in the year 1918,
unless disqualified as provided in
Clause 77 of Table A. at the said Ordinary General Meeting, aud at the
Ordinary General Meeting in every
Subsequent year one-third of the Directors or if their number is not three
or a multiple of three, then the nearest to one-third shall retire from offlce

dirt" Ib about 20 to 25 feet thick, and
so far has proved to be most profitable; (c) the blue-dirt stratum, 36 feet
thick in places, is so solid that lt has
to be droken up by dynamite before

of clay and conglomerate ot considerable depth are to be tested for their
value and there lie on thc bedrock of highly tilted chlorltlc
slates. A large amount of dirt
upon the bedrock has not been tested,
but two shafts arc being sunk this
winter for this purpose, which, if profitable, may have to be washed out
by driving In a tunnel from an advantageous point down the creek and then
washing thc dirt Into Blutces laid
along the working."
With regard to the actual quantity
of placer gold raised from Wild Horse
Creek since thc spring of 1864, when
the gold was first discovered, no actual records exist. The following letter from Mr. N. A. Wallinger, the
present Gold Commissioner for thc
district, is both Interesting and instructive on the point:
Bpccted, and the universal opinion of
all the 'old timers' points to the correctness of this view.
I may add tliat the Chinamen, with
the crudest sort of appliances, have
been steadily getting from 110,000 to
$15,000 a year In placer gold from tbe
Creek since 1899, chiefly from old

' S"pO win the war with the decisiveness which will ensure lasting peace, the Empire
••• will require to put forth its full collective power in men and in money. From
this viewpoint it is our true policy to tiuginent our financial strength by multiplying our
productive exertions and by exercising rigid economy, which reduces to the minimum
all expenditures upon luxuries and non-essentials. Only in this way shall we be able
to make good the loss caused by the withdrawal of so many of our workersfrom Industrial activities, repair the wastage of the war, and find the funds for Its continuance. It
cannot be too frequently or too enrnestty impressed upon our people that the heaviest
burdens of the conflict still lie before us, and that Industry and thrift are, for those
who remain at home, supreme patriotic duties upon whose faithful fulfilment
our success, and consequently our national safety, may ultimately depend."—
SIR THOMAS WHITE, Minister of Finance.
The war U now turning on n congest of all forces
and resources—men, munitions, food, money. The
call to all U to produce mure iiml moro. It may be
nec&isary to work harder. The place ol those who
enlist must be taken by those nt home, men nnd
women, old and young. The more we produce the
more Wc cun save. Produce more on the farm;*, and
in the gardens,   Save more and help to win tlie war.
ln tins war-time all labour should be directly productive or should !.e assisting In production. Make It
as eflictent as possible. If your labour is on something
that can lie posl poiied, put it otf till after the war and
make your labour tell now. Making war is the'first*
business o(' all Canadians; Efficiency in labour is as
Important an efficiency in fighting.
Begin at home. Thc larger portion of salaries
and wages is spent on the home—food, fuel, light,
clothing. Are any of these things being wasted?
120.00 a year saved from waste in every home in
Canada will more than pay the interest on a war debt
of $5tKl,0001(KM).
Are you spending your money to the best advantage? What do you think of extravagance in war
time? Tens of thousands of Canadians are daily
risking their lives for us at home. Is it not our duty
to be careful and economical? Canadian dollars are
an important part of the war equipment. Make them

Last week we looked ln a neighboring newspaper, expecting to see an account of how a young man had gone
wrong. Not a line about the young
man could be found. A broken hearted wife or relative had gone to the editor and asked him to say nothing,
nnd tlie tears had won the promise of
hlm. We have gone through the
same thing ourselves many times. An
editor is humane; he bas his likes and
dislikes, he loves and he hates; hie
strength between love and duty Is Just
that of an average citizen. We remember one case in particular. We
had let a certain case ao by because a
tearful mother bowed down with grief
had come to us and begged the favor.
A big headed man jumped on us and
called us a coward tor so doing. A
sbort time afterwards the shadow fell
across his threshold and he came running and begging us to Bay nothing.
"Yen", we replied, "but don't you remember the time you called us a cow-
ard for keeping still?" "I know," he
replied, "but 1 was wrong; lt is different now." And we listened to him,
but there are things an editor cannot
surpreBs. There are other things we
can forget with propriety. As far aa
,we are concerned, wc would rather
lessen the grief of a parent than throw
out a morsel for gossiping people to
teed upon. We'd rather wipe the tears
from the eyes of a mother than have
"nerve" enough to join the heartless
crowd of flying tongues and sink tlie
iron deeper Into her tender soul. So
when ln thia neighboring paper we
failed to find what we wanted, we
made no comment But deep down ln
our hearts we admired that editor aad
thought more of him, because he had a
heart that was tender and he would
rather listen to the jibes of an unfeeling public than to the sobs of a broken
hearted mother, wife and sister.
The above ts from a country paper
In Oregon and it tells exactly as It is
known to every country newspaper
man who is known by all his patrons.
lt Is different with the editor of the
big city paper who is practically unknown to nine-tenths of Ills readers.
Hc Is seldom appealed to concerning
the suppression of news matter that
might reflect on a puiroii. Hut witli a
small paper It la different, its editor
is asked almost weekly to "sny nothing
about" such and such it matter and
unless lie heeds the appeal, he In hard
hearted and brutal. Even those who
never spend a cent wltll tlle paper will
oxpeet to bo favored every time they
"slip u cog." So far ns we are concerned, we get beastly tired nf thai
"favoring by suppression" business,
but wo continue to dn It-probably
for the reason that we still have a
(Montreal Star)
Wc ought to be enlisting and drilling und equipping quite as eagerly and
swiftly as over, on the vory day that
peace ls proclaimed. Otherwise there
will be no guarantee that the Germans
will not renew hostilities on tho day
following, laughing at us for having
been deceived Into o slackening of our
efforts. The. very belief—apparently
shared by the Germans—thnt we can
win In the long run, Is based upon the
fact that we can raise the larger armies if we keep right at It. But If we
slow up In the process ot raising these
armies, we will be foolishly flinging
away the advantage and giving the
Germans another lease ot life. Moreover, we will be needlessly prolonging the war; for If the Germans find
that we have actually headed them off,
tbey wlll be much more apt to accept
the inevitable without further fighting
than If they joyfully discover that

H> do not hold ourselves responsible
for opinions expressed by
Dear Editor:—
I respectfully crave a short space In
reviewing and passing an humble
opinion with respect to the doings of
the City Council. I wish to express
Uie opion that in making the late
chief of police responsible for the
theft of the forty dollars Is unjust and
unfair. The City Council ls responsible for the theft na lt has not provided a place for the proper security of
the money and I would suggest as the
funds of the city are low that each one
of the Council recoup the defalcation
each out of his own heavy purse. I
think lt ls grossly unfair under tho
circumstances to hold thc late chief
of police responsible for the loss, and
trust as a body of honorable men they
will reconsider the action, take the
letter off the file and as the police
commission decided relieve In a manly
way the chief of police of the responsibility.
There are other parts of the report
of The Herald that strike one as
peculiar, especially on the accounts
ordered to be paid. As a humble taxpayer I have some curiosity as to the
kind of Items some of the bills make
up. Of course Beattie-Murphy will be
medicine—to whom? The city council
or a walfc? Here Is one Wm. Henderson |3, for what service? Campbell &
Manning $75. This may be for groceries, for whom? and this, Ira Manning
Ltd. This Is singular, $21.30. There
are other cases that may be guessed
at. Here Is one, Hanson Oarage $35.
Was this a Joy-ride. Thawing account
Is odd. Whose toes were thawed?
Then the extraordinary climax ls
reached—"Delegate's expenses to Victoria". Who waB the delegate and for
what purpose? Why this diplomatic
secrecy? Was It a Ford-like mission?
An explanation Is asked for by a bewildered taxpayer. We had missions
and missions. One mission consisted
of five Grits to Winnipeg to divert the
Kootenay river from Wasa to Cranbrook. Well, not quito aB hopeless,
but to divert the Kootenay Central out
of the route mapped out by the Charter. It failed, as any rational minded
man could tell, but thc city paid for
that Joy ride. Wishing thc city council health and happiness.
A Bewildered Tax-payer.
[Ed. Note.—w« do not believe there
is any intention on the part of our
correspondent to suggest wrong-doing on the part of the council In regard to any of the accounts mentioned,
but simply a natural desire to have
is paying for. This seems to bo a
point well taken, and as the council
have never attempted to wlth-hold information from The Herald during the
experleuce of the present editor, we
think we can promise our correspondent that in future his wish will be gratified. At the same time we think if
he had been following up council reports during the winter he would have
known that the Campbell-Manning account of $75 was for rent of the barracks for the soldiers, that the thawing account was for thawing frozen
pipes, the most of wnlch was repaid
to the city by the parties benefitted.
Tlie "delegates' expenses to Victoria"
was an item passed pn to the council
by the school board (as a closer reading of the accounts as published
would have shown) and the council
had no option but to pass it.]
