|| ARNOLD &  ROBERTS
11 Fire, Life nod Accident Insurance
Cranbrook has been celebrated in
I he past for banquets. In fact
Cranbrook Is nuted as ono ol the
best banquet towns throughout the
province, but last evening, when the
Board ol Trade tendered a banquet
tn the Hon. William Templemau,
minister of mines, in the Dominion
government, it set a precedent for
banquets in tbe future In this eity.
The arrangements made by the com-
mltlee in charge were absolutely perfect, aud Ibe manner in which the
banquet was prepared by Messrs.
Hoggnrth a Rollins, oi ihe Cranbrook
hotel, was beyond cavil or criticism.
About half past ten ihe numerous
guests began to gather in the spao-
lolls office id Ihe hotel, and at 11
o'clock, A. I.. McDcrinol. secretary
of the Hoard id Trade, who was iii
charge of the affair, owing to the absence of .1. V. M. i'iirkbam, president
of the board, who was at tbo coast,
announced that everything was ready
and the guests, fully sixty iu number, tiled into the dining room. A
prettier scene was never presented
in any banquet room in Cranbrook.
Then* was no inharmonious display in
the way of decorations, no gnrrish
combination of colors, but on the
contrary an exquisite arrangement of
Hght, immaculate linen, glistening silver and glassware and vases of delicate flowers. The tables showed the
touch of a woman's artistic band, ami
appealed lo tbe artistic minds nf all
uf those present. It was a representative gathering, us Mm.se who
were seated about the tabic wore
among the strongest and best citizens
of this rising city, embodying the
brain and sinew of those who have
made Cranbrook the must prosperous
and best known town in Western
Canada. Although the 'banquet was
given in honor of Mr. Templeman,
one of the leading members of the
Dominion cabinet, there was not a
word nor an act during the entire
programme that would "tend to mar
the barmonv of Ihe proceedings or
give Ihe slightest offense 1o any
member of cither parly. Tbe greatest tact was used by nil the speakers, pleasing pleasantries prevailed,
and at the close everv one present
was glad that Cranbrook had distinguished herself in her accustomed
manner. The committee, in selecting the chairman for the occasion,
was exceedingly fortunate. (J. T.
Rogers, ox-mayor, was in the best
of form and his Scotch wit and natural born ability in a trying position of that kind, mcl every cmer-
jeficy that arose in a maimer that
called for the hearties) approval from
every guest preset*,
The banquet was an hastily arranged affall and absolutely informal.
There was an absence of White ties
and immaculate shirt fronts, but on
the contrary the guests were attired
iu costumes that suited best the
close, sultry air of the evening. As
a result everyone felt at home and
there seemed to prevail a feeling of
comradship that made every guest ou
the right ami on the left a friend.
The musical arrangement of the
evening was par excellence. The
piano' was presided over by that
prince ot instrumental entertainers,
S. C. Salmon, while the singing was
entrusted with most excellent judgment to F. W. Reeves, Joseph Ryan
and 11. B. Neilsoti. it would be
useless for the Herald to indulge in
phrases of praise so far ns tbe singing is concerned, Mr. Beeves and
Mi. Ryan, by their vocal work in the
past, nave established enviable reputations in Cranbrook, and Mr.
Neilson has made the most excellent
impression on the public of Cranbrook by Ibe work that hv did last
evening. *
It was a little after H o'clock when
Chairman Rogers called the guests to
order ami asked them lo be seated,
ami then in one of the neatest
speeches that has ever been delivered
in Cranbrook, he welcomed those present and gave the reasons why they
were callttl on. M was a neab talk,
tight to ihe point and characteristic
of llie man, and bad the desired effect of making everyone silting round
the tables feel perfectly at home.
At the close ho introduced the guest
of Ihe evening, the lion. Mr. Temple-
man, who was received with the kind
of applause tbat marks Cranbrook's
reception to any public man, regardless of his party affiliations.
Mr. Ti'inpleman said that he wanted to thank the people of Cranbrook
for the informal banquet which had
been tendered him and for the magnificent reception he had received. He
could not go further without pausing
lo compliment Messrs. Hoggarth A
Rollins, proprietors of the hotel, for
the manner in which they had arranged tbe details of the occasion. They
were complete in every respect and
no man could find belter were he to
travel from coast to coast in the
Dominion „f Canada. This was not
a political meeting hut a meeting ol
citizens alone. He hojied that the
action of ihe Dominion parliament
had been a benelli to the province as
that was the idea of federal administration- to so adjust the laws that
each province would receive i-quitable
recognition. lie had usrtl his,influence to institute llie department of
mines, which is Ironnd to prove a
big benefit to British Columbia, us
well as all other mining districts in
the Dominion. Iu leaving Ottawa a
few weeks ago he determined to visit
the various mining districts in the
Dominion in his official capacity as
minister of mines nml use ids utmost
endeavor to do ail in his power to
assist those who were engaged In this
work. He hoped Hint he might be
able to do some good for the mining
interests in this Way, and desired to
impress upon those present that it
was his duly ns a representative of
Hie people, to assist those engaged in
mining so far as his official capacity
woitM permit. Speaking of tho
towns of this part ot the Dominion,
_1^__^___ °' certain portions
of the country, and tbe C.P.R.
which was of marvelous benefit to the
country; and later the project-ton of
.he G.T.P. ami the Canadian Northern, all combine to show how Canada
is progressing, Within ten years we
will have three transcontinental railways of which wc may well be proud
itizens of Canada, aud in atldl-
for "'parties "tu look" lifter'" "tl/ geoTogJ- j 'i"» to ihcse tuero will be the   llud
l surveys in this province
will prove of inestimable value in the
future, This survey thai is being
le should bo near civilisation
points, near where it would do i inmost good. During the-coming sum-
r parties would he put to work
that important points would be
brought forth and everything done to
the prospector nfld the mine
owner.
Mr. Tomplenmn referred to the long
Qssion and said that o-lihmgh long
be government bad succeeded in
passing many Important measures.
Tiny Imd pass.il a law enlarging the
control of the railroad commission,
which included Ibe telegraph and
telephono lines. They bad done what
thej could to give tiie employes of
railways an honest oppnrtunitv. They
bad passcH a bill in regulate the
label on cigars lo protect Canadian
cigars. Thej bad made a reduction
iu lho postal rates. They had revis-
tlte Patent Medicine Act to protect the people. They had made an
improvement in the election Act,
which Wuiilii do much to insure hon-
L'lections in the future. They
had so legislated as to permit anil
encourage the doubling of railway
transportation, Mr. Temploman sain
that be was astonished to Hull so
many working mines in the Crows
Nest Pass country and thai ho was
satisfied that it was hut the beginning of the building up of (be groat
coal and coke industry that would be
equalled by no other place in Ibe
world, with the exception of Pittsburg, Pa. The building of tlio G-.T.
P., said Mr. Templemau, was a great
undertaking and when computed it.
will brine about the development of
great coal areas, mineral deposits,
timber limits and agricultural lands.
Already ihe interior Is turning out
more coal than Vancouver Island,
which a short time ago was considered tn be the great coal producing
center of the province,
lu closing Mr. Templemau- said:,
As 1 grow older I got less partisan
and all the reward I ask for in my
work is the appreciation of my con-.
stilucnts. That is all I value iu
this world today as I am getting to
be an old man."
.1. A. Harvey, K.C., was next Introduced by the chairman, ami was
received with enthusiastic applause.
Mr. Harvey said it was a pleasure to
welcome to Cranbrook Mr. Temple-
man, as he is a typical western man.
The western spirit imbued every man
who lived in the west and be was
uleascd to hear the patriotic'talk of
Mr. Templeman. Mr Templemau
might have gone wrong in ills views
nolitieally, yet he was glad to have
him here'tonight. British Columbia
has the mineral, tbe soil and the
timber and he hoped that the public
would conserve the resources of the
urovinco. He was nleased lo have
the department of mines organized at
Ottawa ami he believed that tbe department was in good hands. He
would extend the welcome of the,
neontc of Cranbrook to the distinguished guest and would be pleased
to have him come hack ami spend a
longer time among us.
.losoph Ryan, city pollco magistrate, and a well known correspondent for prominent papers, responded
to the toast of mining aud made one
of Hie most Interesting talks of the
evening. Mr. Ryan is mentally
equipped on this subject and hastily
reviewed the glorious opportunities
presented in this district for those
who were engaged in legitimate mining. Briefly and suceinlly Mr. Ryan
reviewed the situation in this district and rave nlaUstbtc reasons for
his belief that it was bound to be at
no distant future one ol the best
mining districts in Canada.
.1, K. Huehernft  was the next    lo
respond to this toast.       Mr. Ilueh-
crott   de-alt   chiefly    with   tbe   St.
Marys valley, with which he is   very
familiar and  was able to give     tin1
minister of mines some very valuable
information that will in all probability result in a great benefit  to that
section of the countrv.       Mr. Hueh-
eroft rightly said that there had been
very little deep mining done and thai
was what was really needed.    He expressed the   desire    for a geological
survev as he said that this was    the
one thing   necessary to brine      out
points that    would be of   value, nol
only to the mine owner lint to    the
vesting public as well.
Dr. J, H. King, M.P.P., was     the
next called   upon and it is unnecessary to say that he was received by
those present with an acclaim of applause that   testified to his popularity in the community, where he has
resided so long.      The doctor        in
speaking    said    Hint he would first
take advantage ot the opportunity to
extend ihe assurance to Mr. Temple-
man that  Cranbrook was the greatest mining center in the province, and
also to compliment tho Board      of
Trade for taking advantage of meeting the minister of mines in the manner Which thfrj   bail.      The geological
survey was bound to be of great benefit to even mine owner and prospector in   the   district    nnd    the  lead
bounty given at the last session   of
..Bay railway, that will giv
outlet from the western provinces   to
lho eastern seas.     The all red    line
will come to stay ami aid prestige
lo Canada's greatness and  prove    to
lie the   great    highway ol commerce
between England and her colonies. We
have done   much in the lasi twenty
• ears, but considering   the past, and
looking   ahead    to     ihe future,  what
I will Canada do in   the nest twenty
iears.'      We have    a large territory
exploited,  one-fourth   now    occupied
and only   one-eighth    under cultivation.       There   are    l.OMUtiH) square
nil's iu this great deniain uuexploi-
d, and    171 million   acres of wheal
land iu this great Northwest       and
nly light   millions of this territory
ow in use.     We have the best min-
ral country in the world, extending
from tho Atlantic to the Pacific. Bo-
losing Dr. King desired io stn'tc
that he wanttfti to congratulate    the
pie of Cranbrook on the fact that
ibey were honored by a visit     from
the'minister of mines and also to express bis appreciation of the cordial
welcome that bad been extended.  Dr.
King's remarks were received     with
I applause, as the speech thai he
e was ono of'the vety best of the
evening.
\ toast was proposed to the hosts,
Messrs.    llogfflirj-h &   Rollins, which
i replied to in a vorv neat manner
Mr. Rollins,  who bad charge     of
the banquet and    his remarks     were
•clved with hearty cheers.
A. 1.. McDcrmot, secretary ol   the
Hourti of Trade, was next called ppon
respond to the toast of 'the manager of such a successful banquet.  Mr.
McDcrmot is a modest man and     replied in a few words, thanking  those
present   for    their kindly consideration.
The entertainment closed with "God
Save Ihe King." and every guest
present left feeling that they had attended one of the best banquets ever
given in Cranbrook.
CURTIS IN TOWN
Smith Curtis, of Rossland, Liberal
candidate for the Kootenay lining,
happened io arrive? In town last evening in time for the Templemau ban-
met. Mr. Curtis knew nothing of
lho arrangement, although he had
been endeavoring to get into communication with Mr. Templeman in
regard to the Hemic disaster and tbe
uroper measures of relief, for several
lays. When he arrived in Cranbrook
be was pleased to find that Mr.
Templeman was to tie hero last wen-
lug and this gave him a direct opportunity to confer with the member
of the Dominion government in re-
trard lo Hie sufferers at Fernie. Mr.
Curtis was one of the first 1o con-
tribule to the relief fund of tbe Fernie sufferers, for as soon as he heard
of the disaster, although traveling on
the road at the time, he telegraphed
one hundred dollars to the committee, which was received with intense
gratitude. The people of Fernie fully
aopreclated Mr. Curtis' eenerous action. Other work that he has done,
has been quietly done, as he is anxious not to aflow polities to be mixed
up with anv action that he may take
in behalf of suffering humanity.

CRANBROOK'S GROWTH
■ f. Coles, representing the Goad
Fire May company, of Montreal,
who was in Cranbrook last week,
stated that Cranbrook is growing
much faster than any town in the
province With the exception (rf Vancouver.
WHERE IS HE?
the Dominion parliament would prov
to be a great Incentive to the mining
Industry of Western Canada. Tbo
Quebec'celehration tended to typify
Ihe great progress that Canada lias
made. II was n IwanfclM illustrate of how this country had gone
ahead since the days of the first
settlement, and especially since tho
davs ot confederation. Three hundred years ago Ihere was naught but
hardship in Canada, nnd those early
pioneers set the pace for what was
fo follow in this glorious Dominion.
The capture o' Ouebee bv Wolfe was
an important feature In the history
of Canada, enual lo the*legislation
that brought about the confederation
of the nrovlnees, which was the real
foundation   of   Canada as o nation.
 v™^—^——, and
Liberal candidate in Kootenay district, is in the eity. Mr. Curtis reports business conditions in the interior as very fair, and outside oi
the lumber industry not suffering
from the money stringency. The, response of the interior towns in aid
of the Fernie lire sufferers is a proof
A both the generosity of their inhabitants and of the welt-being; oi their
average citizens. Rossland for instance has responded with over $1 for
each of its inhabitants. To equal
this Vancouver would have to glvi
$85,000 and Victoria and ils suburb*-
WB.OOU, The aid fund from "
sources will have to be S2u0,ndd oi
more to prevent immediate severe
hardships to the people who lost
homes and everything, and while, the
country generally has generously responded to the call for aid, those persons who have not yet given their
quota can yet do so, knowing that it
is still urgently needed.

THK WHEAT CROP
Reports from all over the provinces uf the middle west point to an
excellent harvest. The steamship
companies operating on tbe Great
Lakes expect to be able to move most
of the crop before tbe close of navigation ou December 5th. Navigation
is closing one week earlier this year
than last, because the insurance com
panics refuse to issue policies oi
vessels clearing from lake ports utter
that date. It is estimntdi that the
spring wheat crop in Manitoba and
Saskatchewan will average twenty
bushels to the acie, while it is believed that Alberta fall wheat will
yield forty bushels. Among tbo best
posted mm Hi the grain trade the
talk is of 110,000,000 to 112,000,UUt>
bushels of wheat from the Canadian
Northwest.

I  OBSERVATIONS  \
«.        HV THE OU) MAN. $
William Blakomoro, editor of n
weekly paper called tin Week, has tli«
following in its last issue, as a part
ol ii long article, eulogizing Mr.
Willson, formerly editor i>f the Globe,
but for several years editor of tbe
Toronto News:
Al first the paper was professedly independenl, and dealt out
unsparing criticism to both parlies, not u little of which was directed at tho miserable time-
server who succcedeH Mr. Wiliison
in llie ollice of lho Globe, and
who by common consent lias prostituted his sacred calling to tho
lowest political service. Of late
the News has been gravitating decidedly towards Conservatism,
nnd "ihe gross scandals of the
Laurier administration have been
trenchantly dealt with in its editorial columns. Now comes the
Announcement that Mr. Flavelle
has turned Ihe whole enterprise
over lo Mr. Wiliison and bis associates, nnd that the paper will
continue to be independent. Ol
Ibis I have my doubts.
No man in Canada knows hotter
than Mr. Blakomorc, thnt the- Mews
lias been purchased by n Cons.-ivii1.ive
syndicate, that It is no longer tnde-
pendent and thai- Mr. Wiliison was
included in the deal. What is thu
use of being such an extremist in poll-
tics, when the people prefer to      see
you honest and Tair.
Really, the election in Saskatchewan bad little or no bearing on the
coming Dominion election, no matter
bow it would have resulted. The
Saskatchewan politicians, under Scott
iid llaiiltain, have opened up many
■in sores in the recent campaign', and
not a single Dominion issue entered
nto ibe contest.
Atne's ''peep show'' performances
lo not seem to be a great success,
notwithstanding the heavy advertising they have been receiving.
Now that tbe election is over it is
time to call oil tbe libel suits iu
Saskatchewan.
Ucrina is the hotbed ol politics aud
.in election iu thai town is like. a
n.iitie between two big armies.
Friends are forgotten, even home ties
iii- broken, and the whole town is in
i ferment of turmoil. And, another
thing, thev an- foolish enough not io
-put after lho election is over.
Tin- relief fund from the Odd Fellows of the western provinces will
amount tu about $3500 to $4000.
Tbat Is pretty good for one organization.
The Herald received many compliments ou the complete reports      it
ne. uf the Fernie disaster and the
energy displayed.
The first number of the Ladysmith
Chronicle has come to hand.     It is a
uu page sheet and is published by
Carley A Carloy, twice weekly. The
mper is newsy and a credit to its
mblishors.
Some ot the papers in tbe cast are
•ompJuiniiig of llie dirty condition of
the bank bills in circulation. A
little while ago any old thing that
was money Was pood enough. The
financial stringency is surely over.
King Kdward makes alliances with
France and Russia and arouses the
inxluty of Germany and Austria.
His Majesty takes a trip to Marien-
hnd, calling on Wilhelm ami Josef
.-n route, allaying their fears and
-.bowing that Bnglnnd is the friend ol
ill enlightened and progressive pow-
irs.
William MnManus, of St. Jonn, N.
tt., dropped dead on being informed
thai lie had fallen heir to $10,000.
There are a number in Cranbrook
who would be willing to take their
uhnnces of surviving such information.
The King kisseid the Kaiser and the
Kaiser kissed the King. If the King
kissed the Kaiser kindly what effect
had it upon the Kaiser that the
King kindly kissed? There must be
several thousands of pretty girls in
Germany that tho King would sooner
mvo kissed than bis august nephew.
Both parties had their triumphs
md thelt griefs In the Saskatchewan
Sections. The Liberal victories in
Itegina and Saskatoon, particularly
ihe overwhelming defeat of Mr.
Laird, were no doubt particularly
icceptable because thev were not altogether expected. While the defeat
if two cabinet ministers, Mr. Calder
md Mr. Motherwell, must be looked
upon as notable achievements on the
part, nf Mr. Haul tain's party. It is
said that the campaign was not
ought in a very good spirit. The
.hi feuds of 1905 seem to have broken out again, causing the contest to
lower itself to a slugging match. No
loubt the people ol Saskatchewan
are glad the election is over.
Commenting on the appointment of
Richard Grlgg, by Ihe imperial government as British trade commission-
r, the Western Morning News of Plymouth, Rnglnnd, has the following to
say:
"The office is a noteworthy experiment, not dissimilar from tbat
of llie United Stales consul-general, The administrator will re-
ipiite In be    full of resource; he
will have tO Steer clear Of polities; tariff reform aud tree trade
will be anathema lo him; ever
vlgjlant wilh ear and eye, his
longuo will need at all times to
be courteous and persuasive. He
will have lo calm many troubled
waters, and. ns a commercial diploma!, settle many personal frictions. Rut his chief [unci ion will
be lo organize a bureau, by means
of which he can feel Ihe pulse of
trade In ebery pnot of tho Dominion. It will be an immense
task, but the present government
deserve much credil iu having called upon Mr, Richard Grlan to be
the pioneer in the work of which,
in his report, he was so strong au
advocate. Should he succeed, ns
we have every confidence he will,
South Africa,'India awl Australia
should also have their appointed
trade commissioners, and then the
British government may nwaken
tn the prime Importance of eon-
ceding to the request of so many
Rl'ilisll chambers of commerce by
consenting to a separate minister
nt Whitehall who will devote his
lime sneclflcallv to the advance
of ttiitish Irade."

PROF. LAKE TALKS TO THE
FARMERS
Farmers, fruit growers and all interested in agriculture and its development iu the Cranbrook district,
who were not at the Farmers' Institute meeting on the 11th inst missed a treat they are not likely to
have the chance of again [or some
time to come.
The speaker, Prof. Lake, ot the
Oregon 'College of Agriculture, who,
it may he said, had been secured by
ihe department of agriculture with
much difficulty, prefaced his remarks
by saying that the first time he came
through this country he thought it
would he the last, the second time
he felt sure it would, but this, the
third time, he was so much surprised
at the develoment of the country, and
its possibilities for fruit raising,
that he was not sure but that he
would come again.
The first thing that struck him,
he said, was our small fruits, the
currants grown here seetncH more
like cherries. "There's one thing at
any rate," he said, "which we in the
States can't touch you on."
Another thine Prof. Lake unreservedly advised all farmers to grow was
alfalfa. There might be some little
trouble at first in getting the necessary nitrogenous nodules to form, but
this could easily Ire remedied hy
purchasing one of the many cultures
on the market, or by procuring a
sack or two of soil from land which
had already successfully grown alfalfa
or clover, but the value ot the crop
for feeding all kinds ot stock, besides its fertilizing influence on the
soil, would bring good money to the
grower.
In speaking of lar&e fruits he said:
"I am not going to tell you what to
grow. My reputation ii the most
valuable thing that I poesess, and if
1 were to say grow this or grow
that, and in ten or fifteen years*
hence were to come through here and
find that the advice I had given you
had resulted in failure, 1 don't think
t should get a very favorable reception, so that I am just going to say
that I don't know anything. The
only thing I can do is to offer suggestions and to answer to the best ol
my ability any questions you may
wish to ask.
The professor further explained
tbat as the soil aiwi climate ol this
district were entirely different from
any iu which he had had experience in
fruit raising, it would be unwise on
his part to pretend to say which were
the varieties which would do best.
This could only Ire done by practical
experiment, and he strongly advised
that the government should establish
an experimental station, or assist
such men as W. P. Hamilton, who
have spent so much of their own timo
and money with this object in anew.
The answers to the many tpiestions
which followed, showed that the
speaker's faculty of observation had
not by any means been dormant during his trip through Kast Kootenay,
and much sound practical advice was
given.
In response to a request Mr. Lake
gave a demonstration of grafting and
building which was much appreciated.
He laid great stress on the necessity for growers to stick to those
varieties only which have been proved
to be suited to the district, and that
only a few varieties be planted in
order that when the trees come into
full heating, shipments can be made
of large quantities of one kind.
A cordial vote of thanks was passed, and the meeting broke up leaving
everyone who Imd been present feeling that a most profitable and enjoyable evening had been spent.

SHOOTING AFFRAY AT VERNON
(Vernon News.)
A terrible shooting affray occurnil
on Pleasant Valley mad on Thursday
morning at 7.HO. F. E. Lay ton, •!.
H. Brown, .1. H. Brown, jr., and
George Post ill were engaged in digging an irrigation ditch across .lohn
Anderson's property, for which purpose thev were under the impression
they had a right of way.
■lohn Anderson said something to
them,' presumably tolling them to get
off his property,' and then ran to the
stable. A few moments later a rille
shot rang out and J. R. Brown, «r.,
wns wounded in the stomach, though
not seriously. Other shots rapidly
followed and at the third shot F. E.
Lay-ton fell dead being shot through
the back of bis head.
The others then fled nnd Anderson
followed, shooting at them wildly
and recklessly with both rifle and revolver. None of them, however,
were hit again and wlten they were
out of tango Anderson gave up the
chase and, making tor the house ot
E. (■. Simmons, the provincial constable, gave himself up saying that
he had shot and probably killed, two
of his neighbors.
PRINCE RUPERT CONTRIBUTES |   ♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦-M
»♦♦*»♦♦♦*»*»♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦*»-»♦-»♦»•»♦»*»*»
Prince Rupert, Aug. 12.—Telegraph-
lie communication between Prince Rupert and the outside cities has been
seriously interrupted during the past
two mouths, due in part to the
railway construction along the
Skeena river, where the located survey of the Grand Trunk Pacific follows the trail of tho Dominion government telegraph tine for over a
hundred miles, but more to the carelessness of the sub-contractors and
their laborers in felling trees ou the
wires, and occasionally setting fire to
trees where they lay, burning and
melting the wire, thus causing a serious delay to business, and great inconvenience to residents of the noith
coast towns in the Skeena district.
Owing to this delapidatcd condition
of the government telegraph line
news of the disastrous fires raging nl
Fernie and Michel, and reports of Hit-
serious loss of life in these districts i
did not reach Prince Itupert until
Vancouver papers arrived last Thursday morning.
Steps were at once taken by the
residents to raise money to be sent
, to the aid of the sufferers at Fernie.
' A committee composed of George W.
Morrow, collector ot customs; .1. M.
Christie, manager of the Canadian
Bank of Commerce, and the Rev.
Mr. Connor, pastor of the Methodist church, was appointed to take the
I matter in hand, and subscription lists
were at once opened. Up to the
'present time over $700 has been subscribed and collected.
| The money raised is now in the Ca-
I nadian Bank of Commerce here, and
will he forwarded promptly to the
relief committee at Fernie, accompanied by a letter expressing sympathy froiu the people of Prince itupert.
TEMPLEMAN AND McBRIDE     IN
FERNIE.
Fernie, Aug. 18.—Hon. Richard MeBride, representing the provincial
government and Hon. Wm. Templeman, representing the dominion, met
in conference with the relief committee this afternoon. Mayor Tuhtle
explained the pressing needs of the
city and asked for assistance from
the governments. Premier MeBride
requested that a statement of the
public buildings, sidewalks, crossings
and sewers, which will have to he replaced logfther with an estimate of
the probahle cost be placed- belore
him. He appearnl to be opposed in
Ihe plan of loaning money to rebuild
houses, but was deeply impressiil
with the necessity of envolving some
scheme for the aiding of the town and
promised that his cabinet would give
the matter the deepest consideration.
Hon. Wm. Templeman could not promise anything on behalf of the Dominion government, but would report
the serious situation to Ottawa nt
once.
HOW ZAM-BUK SAVED A GIRL'S
HAIR
A Lesson To All Mothers.
When eczema, ulcers or ringworm
break out on the scalp, generally the
first thing the doctor orders is to
have the hair cut off, Don't do it
before trying /aun-Hii-.. which can
cure without such ,a sacrifice. Mrs.
J. Butler, of 5 Dan nock burn Avenue,
Montreal, says;
My daughter, Annie, caught ee/.ema.
It broke out on her lace and scalp,
and the disease was quickly transmitted to Herbert nml Edith, and in
their cases not only their beads, hut
their hands and laces were covered
wit-h sores and scaly places.
I tried various blood purifying remedies in vain and then consulted o
doctor. He applied all kinds ol lo-
l ions but the sores remained the
same. He next ordered that the hair
be all shaven olT from the girls' heads
in order to get down to the disease
on the scalp. Thev each had nice
long hair and I thought it, such a
pity to cut it all off. I refused. He
thereupon withdrew his services altogether.
After thnt I bought, first one thing
and then another, but it, was all no
giKxl until we got Zam-Buk. That
proved equal to the case nnd in a
few weeks It cleared every trace of
skin disease from each child. With
it iu use there was no need 1o cut off
ihe girls' hair or take anv other extreme measure. It just went to
work and healed the sores In fine
shape."
Znm-Huk cures blood poisoning,
cuts bruises, old wounds running
sores, ulcers, boils, eruptions, scalp
sores, eczema, itch, barber's rash,
bums, scalds, and nil skin injuries
and diseases. Best cure for piles
yet known. All druggists nnd stores
at Q0c, a box, or from Zam-Uuk Co.,
Toronto.

Tiie baity bas gone to school
What will the mother do.
With never a call to button nr pin,
Or tie a little shoe?
Mow can   she   keep herself   busy all
day,
With  tne    little   'hindering  thing"
away?
Another basket to till with lunch,
Another "good-bye" to say,
And the mother  stands at tbe door
to see
Her baby march away;
And turns,    witb a sigh that is half
relief,
Ami half a soiucHiim*, akin to irrfef.
She thinks of a possible future morn,
When the children, one hy one,
Will go from their home out into the
world
To battle witb life alone;
And not  even    the baby   lie hit   to
cheer
The    desolate     home ot   Unit future
year.
She picks     up     garments   here ami
there,
Thrown down in careless baste,
And    tries    to think   how it would
seem
If nothing were displaced;
If the house were alwavs as still as
this,
Mow would she bear the loneliness?
The oak if in the middle of the
forest, which is surrounded on every
side by trees that, shelter and shade
it, runs up tall and sickly; put away
from its protectors ami tho first
blast will overturn it. But the
same tree growing in the open field,
where it is continually beat upon by
the tempest, becomes its own protector. So the man who is compelled
tip rely on bis own resources, forms
au independence of character to
which lie could not otherwise have
attained. Therefore prefer rather to
climb up bill witb dillicilties than to
roll down witb inglorious ease,
One person in a house, who has a
lofty conception of God and pure
ideas of life, can lift the whole family to tbat level, just as the leader
of an orchestra strikes a ringing key
note to which every musician con.
forms until the harmony is perfect. A
stranger entering a household knows
whether the key note there is higli or
low. There arc houses, affluent In
wealth and culture, where the dis-
rds are incessant, and the meaning
of life no higher than that ot brutes.
But no symphony can compare with
the significance of daily life, in u
family of gentle words and noble con
duct.
For a gortl, everyday household iin-
gel give us the woman who laughs.
Her biscuit may not always be fust
rltfit, and she may occasionally
burn her bread and forget to replace
dislocated buttons, hut for solid comfort all day and every day she is a
very paragon- Home is- not a battle
field, nor life one long unending row.
The trick of always seeing tbe bright
side, or if the matter has no bright
side, of shining up the dark one, is a
cry important faculty; one of the
things no woman should lie without.
We are not all    born    with the sun-
hine in our hearts, as the Irish
prettily phrase it, but wc can cultivate a cheerful sense of humor it wc
only try.
Take people by the hand whom you
really wish to help. Don't stand'on
filch pedestal and tell them to do
themselves the honor or jumping to
your level. Either go to them kind*
v and extend to them the friendly
liand of christian fellowship, or let
i lion: alone.
THE RISE OF A BOY
This boy goes to his business, and
it his business begins by simply doing the things he is told to do, and
doing them in a common and ordinary
way.     If    he stops here, he remains
11 bis life long a drudge. But If he
begins to  sec    that    business has a
ignifieance, that his life is not merely sweeping the store, uot merely
selling goods; if he begins to see the
higher life involved in business; if he
begins to see that business is a
greater instrument of beneficence than
That we call beneficenre. that trade
is clothing thousands of men where
charity clothes ten, that agricultural
and milling industries are feeding
thousands of men where charity Iccds
ten; if he begins to see how the whole
history of the world is linked together, anil is God's way ot bulliUr-j n
iiumanity and serving humanity—as he
gets this larger view, and enters into
it, life is enriched and becomes itself
the minister whereby love is enlarged
and conscience is strengthened, the
school wherein he is educated out of
the lower into the higher.
IS YOUR HOME COZY?
There are many so called homes
that do not deserve the name at all.
Home means comfort, but when we
have it fixed up so elaborately that
we must sit in the garret or the
back yard to genuinely enjoy ourselves then it is high time we made a
change and turned out the too-go.il-
to-use articles nnd substitute for
them real homely things that W«
could enjoy every day of the year
and everv moment of the day.
Men like pretty home-makers, no
mistake there. They can appreciate
heauty as well as the next one, but
they want that beauty to lie of an
order that appeals to their sense of
homo comfort. Of what good are
cushions so elaborately embroidered
that no head can ever repose on
them*- What sense is there In easy
'chairs ol such rich material Mini thej
are quite the reverse of the name
given them? ,   ti     ,
Is there anv satisfaction in a room
the furnishings of which cost hundreds of dollars, when it is only open
at rare intervals, while the owner,
! perhaps, sits hv tbe kitchen lire or hi
some dingv sitting-room, where ho
can put his feet on the fender if he
wants to, can smoke, nnd as a great
Indulgence, tilt bark In Ills chair?
I Let the sunshine into the gloomy
rooms, havo a conch to lie on, a
piano to play on; in fact, a home to
live in one wherein n sense ol hospitality and good oheer exudes from the
vtry'tables and chairs, instead of "
mausoleum of gloomy elei-anco
wherein everything is for show and 07U,
nothing to be used. four

HOUSTON'S   VIEWS ON PROVINCIAL MATTERS.
(Prince Rupert Empire.)
At the last session of the legislature tbe Cons tit ut km Act was
amended so as to provide tor six,
instead of five, paid members of the
executive council. Tbe reason' given
for making the change was that there
was too niuc-h work in the lands and
works department for one minister,
and that tbe department should he
divided, tbe crown lands going to one
department and tbe public works to
another. The Empire could not
then, and does not yet, see the necessity for creating a sixth member
of the excutibivo council, as it is well
known tht- minister of mines is a
sinecure position, and the bundling ol
crown lands could very well bo,added
In his department- But tiie object
of creating tho new office was to give
a well-paid position to one of the
iTnl men who imagined lliey should
he oared for bV tbo lirst Conservaliv
government the province has ever
had. There were a number of these
men, and il. is to he the number is
not decreasing. First comes "Tom"
Taylor, of Itevelsloke. Ho was the
McBriditc whip for four sessions and
demands recognition. 'Torn" is
honest and is well liked by the members generally; but he Is not very
heavy as a debater ami would not
impress tbo "stranger in the gallery"
as weighty enough for a minister. So
he will not get it; for he "takes
programme," as thev say in California, and will not kick over the
traces. Next comes Ross, of Pernio. He is H heavyweight, in avoirdupois,'and is Bowser's man Friday.
He will not get It. Third in anxiety to get the position is ".Iim"
Schoflcld, ul Trail. He is a good
fellow; would be fair as an executive,
but has no debating strength. Ho
will not get ft. Fourth of A. E.
McPhillip-,, uf Victoria, who was Me
ed?
(Prince Rupert Empire.)
The Conservatives of Kootenay
have nominated A. S. Gooduve, of
Rossland, io make the race for the
district at tbe next Dominion election. Mr. Goodove was iu business
at Rossland for a number oi years as
a dealer in drugs and stationery, and
was mayor of Rossland when "Barney" McDonald, manager of tbo Lo-
Doi mine, made an attempt to break
up the Miners' union. Mr. OoodoVQ
was taken into the MeBride government as provincial secretary on the
eve of tho provincial election in I SOU,
but was defeated bv J, A. Macdoi
aid, the present lender ol the ptovil
rial opposition. He is classed as
"silver-tongued orator.'' Noiw'itl
standing he will have the hacking i
W. II. Aid ridge, general manager *
the Trail smelter ami lho mining
properties of tho Canadian Pad fit
railway, he will he defeated by
Smith Curtis. Curtis is the abler
and more forceful man of the two,
und as a member of parliament could
lie depended on to stand on bis
feet and speak for the interests of
his district and of the province without forgetting thai Canada is a na
tion.
W. II. Aldridge, of Trail, was not a
delegate to the Conservative convention at Nelson. He will pull more
political strings in Kootenay than all
the members tff the MeBride srovern-
meut put together; hut he can't elect
A, S. Goudeve member of the Dominion house of commons.
(Prince Rupert Empire.)
Occasionally one hears a wail from
a newspaper or from an individual in
a public gathering lamenting tho fact
that people born in the United States
obtain employment and engage it
business in Canada The wail sel
dom comes from other than short
sighted Eastern Canailians or from
people who crossed the Atlantic to
get the Almighty Dollar in order to
tccross tbo Atlantic and live like a
lord. Thero are hundreds of thousands of people horn in Canada who
are earning a living in tbe United
States. There, is the freest intercourse between the two countries, lu
the two countries will be found the
most tolerant men and women 1b.il
live, as well as some of the most
narrow, bigoted and intolerant. Here
in British Columbia will he found
Americans who think Canada and Canadians are all right. Here are also
to be found Americans who damn
Canadians and Canada and everything produced by Canailians in Can.
ada. Western Canadians pay no attention to their waitings, because i
largo percentage of Western Canadians have lived in the United States
and know Ihat its people on the
Whole are among the best on earth.
The Old Countryman comes to Canada inbred witb class prejudices and
peculiarities. Like the fault-finding
American, he can see nothing that is
perfect in Canada or its people. Yet,
after a residence of a few years few of
them ever care to return to the Old
Country. They may retain their
peculiarities, but their class prejudices are wiped out for food. A people
with the same customs, tho same
language, the same laws, and the
same peculiarities may growl at each
other because of the success or failure
of individuals; but while their growls
may he aired in newspapers and on
steamships and in hotel offices and on
street corners, they are never given a
place in school biwks or in history.
"Canada for the Canadians!" sounds
well at a political meeting. But
what docs it moan? It menns that
Canadians will make the laws that
tho people residing in Canada must
obey—and nothing more.

Every class ol theatrical ottering
appears to have its followers. Some
crate Shakespeare and the classics,
some the morbid problem play, others the farce, some tragedy, some
comedy, hilt every one, almost with-'
nut exception, loves the minstrel
show. Tin-re appears to he some responsive chord, a sort ol telephatic
sympathy, between the merry, merry
minstrels and humanity difficult to
understand, and still more difficult to
describe. But that such a fedllns
exists is amply proven hy the large
houses that always -greet a minstrel
company of known reputation and
worth. Richard's A- Prlnglc's famous
company, the largest minstrel organization upon the road, undoubtedly
the best , and by far the oldest, have
been making people laug-h lor thirty
years—over a quarter of a century.
You of the younger generation ask
your grandfather the first minstrel
company he can remember, and he
will probably tell you Richards St
Priugle's.
This company's age and popularity
Is remarkable, yet easily explained.
They have always endeavored to
give the best minstrel show on the
road, anil have always treated the
public fairly and honestly. The public in turn have learned to rely upon
them, nnd have fiiH.li In their promises. They will abpear at the Audi
toiiiim uu Wednesduv. Aug. 211th.

LLOYDS IN TROUBLE
(Monetary Times.)
News ut tiie financial troubles ot
some of the underwriters in the London Lloyd's has reached Wall street
this week. The situation, says a
New York despatch, seems to bo
more serious than at lirst appeared.
This famous London society, which
has been writing insurance fiit neatly
three hundred years, is made up ot
independent, underwriters often working iu groups. H is now learned
that one ot the largest of these
groups of under writing syndicates is
facing losses estimated at between
$ I ,tiU0,uiHi and $2,100,000, against
which the security \m deposit with
the trustee of Lloyd's amounts lo
onlv $105,000.
Many of the New York banks are
directly interested in the situation,
having been accustomed tu accept llie
security afforded hy the Lloyd's
policies without ipiestlon, and since
the facts of the troubles in London
have become known here those who
hold policies iimli'i llie names ul the
syndicate in dlfilcultlea have been
making hasie tu covor \>\ reinsuring, \ large uuinhoi of these pollutes have been taken out on Canadian
mill properties I il has lake - a
great main mclro hazardous in.-
risks. To he insured at Lloyd's has
fur many a day been regauled as In-
sured beyond question uf indemnity.

Lloyd's had nssumed a grealei burden
Hi,,I, it could carry, it could still re-
h   on assistance from within foi     tlm
sake of tbe whole body's reputation.
Au unusual si rain lias of late been
Imposed upon tins friendly claim.
Speculation has been Indulged iu by
some td the underwriters uf Loudon
Lloyd's to au extent which Lho
committee cannot handle, ami a curtain group of the underwriters is
bankrupt.    Their losses ,ue placed l>\
ono despatch at $2,000,1100 while
their assets, it h said, do nut reach
$150,000.
INNOCENCE ABROAD
The San Francisco Examiner has
this to say about the Saturday Sunset tour party, of which Miss lieorgio
Small, uf this city, is a member:
When the steamship President

'morning a party of twenty fair
maidens from Vancouver, bent, on

them evTi'ssed ii, lauded. Some
uf them ate society girls of the
younger set of Vancouver and the
rest are from other towns in
British Columbia, They look
upon ibis outing by themselves as
ihe rarest suit ot a frolic and
despite their calehv appearance
and good looks plead absolute iu-
uoceuee of designs against Ihe
hearts uf Native Sun;. They
will du San Francisco and every-
IhIng in ii from Chinatown to
Lovers' Lane at the Presidio,
that's all. The patty is the result of a lour given by the Saturday Sunset. Vancouver's society' wceklv—nnd while chaperons, Dr. flabie and his wife, uf
Vancouver, were duly provided,
the nills    smile   when   they  think
uf ii. Sss—sh' They whisper
ii. The doctor and his wife arc
on their honeymoon and need a
chaperon themselves. So the
young ladies, freed from conventions and out fur a "perfectly
splendid" time, are going to do
California and Mexico thoroughly,
and perhaps they will take a few
scalps hack tu Canada as souvenirs.
