At a recent meeting ol the Cranbrook IMslrict Automobile association, ''eld nl Wasa, the question ol
free eulry of B.C. motors into lho
province of Alberta was given ' considerable attention, At present Al-
bertu compels owners of B.C, cars to
take out a license upon entering the
province, This is somewhat of a
hardship, more particularly in view
of the law, in this connection,,existing in this province, which is as follows:
Motor, Vehicle    Act, Chap. 189, Sec.
8, Sub-Sec. I.
Every motor hereafter brought into
the province for temporary use lor
touring purposes for any period not
exceeding thirty days, shall, by the
owner, or the person in Possession
thereof, before it is used or operated
upon or along any highway, be registered wilh »hc superintendent ol
provincial police by delivering to
such superintendent or to any chiel
constable of provincial police, or provincial police constable, a notice in

opinion these extensive shale outcrops will he found to be coal at a

The federal incorporation of the
Cauatla Flax Fibre Company, Limited, td Toronto, with a capital stock
of three million dollars, as announced
in the Canada Gazette, presages tbe
inauguration of a great new industry
of special importance to tbe prairie
provinces. The incorporators arc
nominally law clerks and stenographers in a Toronto law office, but it is
understood the men behind the enterprise are Toronto ami Knglish
capitalists. Tin* manufacture ol
cloth and paper from Max fibre on au
extensive scale in the prairie provinces, where (lax is grown extensively, and where hundreds of thousands
of tons of (lax straw are now thrown
away each year, has been rendered
feasible hy a new process of handling
liax fibre. The Incorporation of thc
new company marks tin* lirst step towards the exploitation ol what promises io Ik* a most iinpi riant manufacturing Industry iu the west.
Paper manufacturers declare that
the cultivation of (lax in the prairie
provinces for its fibre value alone,
irrespective of the value of the seed,
is destined to become Immensely profitable.
Since the reign id the Pharaohs
sixteen weeks have been consumed in
getting (tax ready for spinning, and
a further thirty or forty days have
been necessary in which to bleach the
limn product for market, iiy harvest-!
ing at the proper time good fibre can
be produced ami a (air crop of seed i
be produced nl the same time, and
by the new process raw (lax can now
he converted into perfectly bleached
limii lihie ready for spinning or for
the paper machines in one day. Sound

A year ago a good many Englishmen
persuaded themselves that Industrial
warfare of tbc old type had been elided.
Hut since Die convulsion rf last
August the whole situation, the very
atmosphere itself, seems to have
changed. New fores, a new spirit,
have been liberated; and (In- public
mind is in a stale nf stunned and
chaotic bewilderment, We have all
ln*en made conscious of tin- increasing
si lidnrlty ami Interdependence of
labor, but none of us knows whal it
may portend. Wo have seen—we arc
seeing loday—not only ihe resurrection of the strike, bul its vasi extension. A strike formerly ns a
rule was confined to a single section
of a single industry ami was directed
against a single employer. The other
sections in the same industry, or tbe
same sections working for other, employers, were neither dragged Into the
struggle nor felt, any call lo participate in it. It was, in short, a
strictly localized affair. Ilut labor
nowadays is far bet fer organized and
far more alive tn the value of cohesion and unity. Tbe result is that
we have seen men with admittedly
no grievances at all leaving their
work and throwing down Iheir tools
in order to show their svmpalhy with
their fellow-laborers who bad struck
for some definite    cause.     Wc     hav

Labor, as it grows yearly more mechanical, grows yearly mole discun-'

deadly grading nf the industrial mill
that brings in so little grist to tlw
workers themselves, more determined
to convert political power into higher
wages, belter houses, more food, and

knowledge and self - consciousness,

prosperity. Is there, then, no way
out? I know of none unless it tie
the loop-hole of profit-sharing. Whcr-'
ever profit-sharing has bun tried il
has brought to the working-man nol
only higher wages, more self-respect,
a greater incentive lo bitter work, a
friendlier attitude toward the employer, and a tangible proof of the
mutuality of industrial interests, b'ut

The concerl held in the Auditorium
lasl; Friday evening, under the auspices of the Ladies' Aid of the Catholic church, proved a very enjoyable
one, local performcra providing an excellent programme. Tlie proceeds ot
the concert were to be devoted to
the building fund for the new church,
nnd a substantial addition was made
thereto. Thc opening selection was
by tho orchestra, under the leadership
ol Mr. \V. Guerard, and proved a very
capable rendition of "The Spring
Maid." "Hail King George," liv
eight young ladies, was also very well
rendered. Master Fink made a decided hit with bis violin solo and bad
lo respond to an encore. Mrs. Paterson sang "Angels Guard Thee," with
violin obligato, with even more than
customary grace and finish. Seven
small boys sang "Tho Indian Song" ,
in such excellent manner as to provoke a triple encore. Mrs. .1. K. Kennedy gave a very pleasing rendition
nf "When 'Tis Summer in the
Heart." Then came Mr. Geo. Stevenson with "A Son of the Desert,"
in which bis line voice was heard to
splendid advantage. A piano duett
by Mrs. Manning and Mrs. Wrightman
was so pleasingly rendered that an
encore was necessary. A quartette1
by Mrs. Chapman, Miss Kennedy and
Messrs. O'Connell and Raworth, also
proved a winner, au encore being de-]
mantiid. "The Gypsy Chorus," by
eight young ladies, needless to say,
delighted everybody. The young
ladies were suitably and prettily at-'
tired, adding effectively to the
charm of the song. Tn many respects ibis concert was one of the
best given in Cranbrook for some
time and reflected great credit upon
Mrs. W. Guerard; to whose management much of the success was due
One of the features of the concert was
the appearance of Mrs. Chapman,
for the Iirsl time, as a soloist. Those
who heard her rich, sweet voice, hope
that it will not lie the last.
Just one of the points in which
Campbell's Clothing
excels   is  in   the  fact that the
coat    fronts   are    unbreakable.
The solid foundation of haircloth
and canvas, stitched and reinforced, absolutely prevents the
large and unsightly wrinkles
which form up and down the
front of the average coat.
This is a guaranteed point with
us and one of the reasons why
is the perfect clothing.
