The Kootenay Telephone Lines,

work in the city these days, n-

unsightly muss of wires now strung
along Louis street, from the Methodist church to the Church of England, aud along Armstrong avenue
from Baker street to Edwards street,
along Baker street from the Imperial
bank corner round to the lloyal
hotel. In all they are engaged in
stringing some six thousand leet of

At the local head office the switch
board at present in use is to be moved upstairs and a new switch board
installed, which will provide additional capacity for 150 subscribers.
When these improvements are completed the facilities of the local

LET ALL ENJOY A
MERRY CHRISTMAS
Since our last appeal, the Herald
has learned of lour or five cases within the city limits, and of one just
mtsidc, where the prospects tor a
merry Christmas are anything but
ihccrtul. lu each case several little
•hitdrcii are involved and the Herald
feels that it is only necessary to
make this fact known to secure
ample provision for the Christmas
dinners of all ol these unfortunates.
The Herald would like to be able to
add some little gift from Santa
Claus for each of the children All
donations for this purpose will be
distributed through recognized charitable workers in the city. At this
season of the ycac all those who have
enjoyed good fortune during the preceding twelve months can well afford
to give a thotijjit to those less fortunate. A trifle from your plenty-
may assist in brightening the Christmas searon for the few children in
this city whose parents, (or one cause

******************************************* THE   CRANBROOK   HERALD
IHE NE TEMERE DECREE
ITS   BEARING    ON THE LEGALITY OK MAKHIAGES—A
TIMELY REVIEW.
COLD SORES   AND ULCERS ARE | law the same
Tin* No Temere decree which has
excited so much controversy all over
tlu. world during Uu* pnst few months
ami which is saitl in somewhat vague
and indefinite terms in somo muartcrs
in have contributed to Uu* defeat el
the government ol Sir Willrid Laurler
ia the province of Ontario, forms tho
subject of ;m article in the latest ol
Mi. .lohn s. Ewart's "Kingdom
Papers."
Mr, Bwarl gives a very clear ami
definite exposition of the decree in
Its in.uun'. upon marriage, ami
shows that whatever may bo its
etTect in a religious sense upon Roman Catholics it has absolutely no effect upon the validity of marriage In
civil law eithei here oi in any other
Hntisli country. II Is shown thut a
great deal oi misapprehension exists
on iveount of whal litis lit en very
foolishly saiil »y persons wlm either
knew little of wJial they discussed or
cared little Inr whal complexion they
put upon il. It is pointed out that
in reply to a question in the house of
etiiiiiuoiis, Mr. Birr el I (a member of
the British government) said "Tho
law knows nothing of papal marrlago
legislation. Wo believe that under
it, our Catholic fellow men are not
so free to marry ami lo divorce and
marry again. Our courts will continue to administer our own law,
ami all wlm apply for its benefits
shall havo litem. It has lost none
of its efficiency silico August. 2,
1907."
Both the Synod of Toronto aud llie
Methodist body in that city ait
blamed for sending out disturbing
emanations calculated to arouse sectarian prejudice without throwing
light tm the question at  Issue     ,
These art* given as samples of tht1
headlini-s in which tlie Synod's indiscretions wen- shown "An- lhe Dt>
trees of Home "* Rule in Canada?"
"Rome Can Destroy Matrimony?";
'•Tin* Members of the Protestant Reformed Religion Have Rights" "What
Power is tu Settle Our Marrlago
Laws'?"
Mr. Bwarl proceeds to show that
lhe present excltcmcnl was precipitated hy the Heberl case. But for
it, the promulgation of the Ne
Temere decree mlghl have attracted
little attention iu Canada or England. Protestant assemblies here
have associated tin- decree with the
case. They have Imagined that the
east* was an enforcement of the th-
Croc—tliat (he Pope issued a deem' iu
Rome, and that a Canadian court
had forthwith given elTccf to it in
Canada. For example, a resolution
of a Methodist meeting in Toronto
contained the following:
"We noli- with alarm that the
ground is taken hy tht- Romish j
church, and evidently hy tlie judge •
in the east* cited, that the N« Tcmeri*
decree of tin* Pope and College of!
Cardinals at Rome gives authority tu
the said church to subordinate Uncivil laws of the Province of t.uchce,
aud thus make null and void the authority oi tlif lieutenant-governor
under whose seal the marrlago was
performed." I
Ami it pastoral letter of tin* Anglican
House of Bishops (21 May, 19 LL)
contained lhe following: "Whereas,
the minds of many have been greatly
disturbed by a decision in the
courts ol the province ot Quebec
annulling a marriage between two
members of the Roman church, solemnized by one authorized hy the
state to officiate at marriages, and
by enforcement ot the decree known
as the Ne Temere decree by the
Bishop of Rome; ami "Whereas, we
believe- tin* said decision to in* rjon-
trnry to the Christian ideal of marriage, to involve grave mil injustice, and to be in its consequence
destructive to the home life of the
people." The writers of these sru-
t-onces, Mr. Ewarl says, mosl completely misapprehended ihc situation.
The To Temere decree had no mure
to do with the Heberl ease than
had the Turco-Itnllan war. l.ct mc
make this perfectly clear tit is a
simple task), and afterwards endeavor to explain, with such precision as
I can, what the effcel of the decree
really is.
Heberl v. Clouatre: Two points
were involved iu tin* division, namely:
I According tn the law ol Quebec,
a Protestant minister cannot marry
two Roman catholics.
'2. According to the law ol Quebec,
the validity of a marriage contract
between two Roman Catholics must
be divided hy the Roman Catholic
Ecclesiastical courts and not hy the
civil courts.
That the. No,Temere decree had no
relation to, or influence upon the Hc-
bert ease, results very indisputably
from the fact that the decree came
into existence in 1907, whereas the
1.wo poinls involved in the ea«e have
lieen discussed in a long series of
similar casts dating back at least
sixty years, and very probably to a
very much earlier period, I might
content myself with a mere slate-
merit of that fact; but perhaps n
lew words In explanation of oaotl ut
the points of the case may not he

lieve that the functions ot the Quebec
civil courts are not thus limited,
and tliat in a province in which ah
religious arc, frum a legal standpoint
equal, the majority view is not only
anomalous in theory, hut Impracticable iu operation.
Very clearly, the courts must have
jurisdiction in eases which the parties
do not belong tu any church. Por if
not, the validity of such a marriage
cannot be investigated at all.
Mr. Ewart holds that the
judgmeats ut the courts themselves
show that the Quebec judges must
have jurisdiction iu all eases except
thoso in which the interested parties
are Roman Catholics. Thus tlie conclusion is arrived at that il in that
special class of cases, the Quebec
courts have no jurisdiction it mU3t
bo because of some very special position occupied by tlie Roman Catholic
church.      But it has no special posi-

legal character: "Can Roman Catholics (nol (-iin Protestants, ami not
run a Roman Catholic* and a Protestant; Imi ran Roman Catholics) he
legally married otherwise than hy a
Roman Catholic priest?" Tho answer
depends not upon the terms of any
decree—papal or other—but upon tho
proper interpretation uf an uld Quo-
hec statute. Long technical arguments can ht* urged in support of
each side of the question and the
((iicbcc Judges hold different opinions.
I shall not attempt an examination
of the     merits     of    the
that the Quebec courts have Jurisdiction to decide the quest ion     uf     the
validity of marriage that nu distinc-
lious can he made between eases     in
whieh Roman Catholics are interested and those in which they are not.
j    As   to   the  No Temere   decree the
Roman Catholic church does not pre-
j tend it affects the civil status ol the
parties   concerned.      The    principal
! clause of the   Nc Temere decree has,
' substantially, been in force as Roman
i Catholic ecclesiastical law for    more
than 150 years.
■ (a). The only change effected hy
the decree, was to extend the application of the rule to the case of
mixed marriages. Since the decree,
a mixed marriage is, in the view i,(
the Roman Catholic church, invalid,
unless solemnized by a Roman Catholic priest.
(b).   But the   view ol the   Roman
Catholic    church   has no more effect

if   the view ot the statute upheld     in
the Hebert case is wrong, the remedy
is an appeal to a higher court; and if
that    view    is right,     then, Roman
Catholics    desiring    to bc   married

The Quebec judges hold opposite

lie smoked clgarotlos ami much ol
the time was full of dope and booze.
Instead of trying to remedy tin*
ura' points of Paradise, he merely
pointed them onl and harangued
about them to all wlm would listen.
Antl Satan still Hilda mischief for
itlle bauds to do. It wns the same
then: Satan would neither tunc
harps, launder llu* lobes, nor polish
tbe pavement, which was made af
gold and precious stones.
It too-' a lot of labor ami a deal
of skill to set the pavtng-stones, hui
while the workers wero nt it, Satan
would sit on the curb ant! make
sport of them.
When tho Almighty came .around to
see how things were getting along,
Satan would whisper unkind things
about Him after He had passed,
and kick about how severe He was in
discipline.
The Almighty warned Satan Irom
time to time to get busy, but his
answer was, '-I am!"
"•Sure enough," replied the Almighty, "but ut. the wrong thing."
They tried lo got Satan to lead
the Choral Society and break in the
new arrivals, some of whom sang
slightly ofl key.
"I teach those jays? Why, they

It was no use—Satan would not do
what he was told. He always knew
a better way. and he sneered it
every plan for a Heavenly betterment that he did not himself suggest.
And he suggested precious few, ami
these he could not carry out.
There was only one thing that Interested him, ami that was the Anvil
Chorus.
When the saints gang Hallelujahs,
Satan would start up bis favorite Instrument and pound. He wasn't

It is the desire of the C.F.L.B.
establish a printing department for
the purpose of printing Canadian

the Canadian blind. There is at pre-
sent no such establishment in Canada, with the result tbat Canadian
literature is practically unavailable

plan feasible. Less ihan a

this Christmas to help it to realize

Mr. Stephen Maxwell Bald "Thanh
Heaven" when he waa told that tilt
wife find brought a hod Into the world (
He mill it emphatically but reverently,
for lie Imd prayed diligently tbat the
cli lid ink'hi he a boy.
"There'll lie a son again, after all,'
be murmured, "Maxwell ft Bon, estab
'llabed 1782, lather and rob all the
time. Itut I thought I waa going ta
be the litsi Maxwell to break the run."
' Mr. and Mrs. Maxwell had been mar
rled fifteen years without their union
having tu*' n blessed with children,
, though they had both longed for a
little one nf their own. Now Mr. Maxwell waa forty, and a son had been
born to hlm after lie had lost hope.
, "How pleased the uld dad would
have been," ba muttered. "He thought
there wouldn't be any more Maxwell
ft Bon after me."
A clever utialnesB man, Stephen Max*
welt had made of Maxwell & Son
more than half a dozen of his ancestor*
put together. When the buBlneBs had
come lulu his father's hands It had
been In very lu\v water, and ft was a
long time Improving, with the result
that Stephen Maxwell had been sent
to a free Hchnul, and taken away at the
earliest possible moment to work In
the llun ut a lower wage than any
other clerk.
However, the business was pulled
round, ami when the elder Maxwell
died, It was ijuite a flourishing concern. It hud gone on steadily improving under Stephen's guidance, though
all the wlille he was grieving secretly
at the loss ot the old name, for there
was no son. nor did there seem likely
to be one,
Ar the boy grew up, so Mr. Maxwell's business Increased by leaps nnd
bounds, for he had Heggle to work for
now. IU- meant the boy to have a
very different upbringing from his
own, and he sept him to an expensive
preparatory school, from thence to a
well-known public school, and even*
tually Reflle H'ent to Oxford.
Iteggle tlitl excellently at school and
college, and th« father's pride In his
son's siiceens was Indescribable.
He had it room specially furnished
at the Office, putting the very latest
convenleni'i-8 Into It, and making it as
comfortable ua possible . He told the
clerks It was to be known as "Mr.
Reginald's room." and that they were
to in-lit the son as they treated the
father.
While RSfltS was at Oxford his
uncle died, leaving his only child, now
au orphan, In his brother's charge.
Alice MtUtWell was a quiet, good*
looking girl ui twenty when she came
to live with bar I'nclc Stephen, und
she speedily became like a daughtor
to .Mr. and Mrs, Maxwell.
Reggie CSma down from Oxford, mid
voted Alice n "Jolly good sort." When
be went up n*-:uln Ik> look her h'-nit
with hlm, though be did not know |i.
Alice Imd never met unyon-' qultfl
like Heggle. Ills public school and
college, cvst/L W »"4l » f **#* °"
hlm which made him different from
any other young men she met. He was
it handsome boy, too, and bad what
the Irish call "a way with him."
The girl gave her love unasked, and,
when she realized this, she resisted all
Reggie's attempts to flirt with ber. It
annoyed tbe undergraduate at first.
but presently he began to conceive a
new reBpcct for his pretty cousin.
Mr. and Mrs. Maxwell were not
blind to the state af affairs, and It
pleased them highly, for Ihey desired
no one more than Alice for their son's
wife. Many a happy hour they passed
after Alice bad gone to bed, planning
for the young couple's future.
They ho|>ed they would live lu the
tame bouse; but. If not. Stephen Max*
well was unite prepared to buy a
house and furnish It for his boy, In
allelic Ion to tlie handsome salary he
intended to give him when he entered
tin* bustncBS.
"Perhaps they'll have a boy. wife,**
ha said, gleefully, and Maxwell and
Sun will keep on Into another generation."
Stephen Maxwell was over sixty
now. but be looked, acted and felt SS
though he were ten years younger.
Alice Maxwell counted the weeks
until the vacations came round and
broughl Heggle. She developed considerable during the two years following her father's death; her beauty
gaining her many admirers, but she
would dispense with them all but
Reggie,
* Why, Ally, you grow prettier story
'line I see you," said her cousin, when
he i ante down for bis last vacation
from Oxford.
The girl flushed a fiery crimson,
and her heart beat furiously at the
words. She was content to find approval Id Reggie's eyes. But he showed no signs of returning the love ahe
lavished on bim tn secret, and bar
heart grew heavy In these daya.
Reggie's career at Oxford waa S
series of triumphs. He had got s
double first and had scored a century
at Lord's against Cambridge, amongst
other honors, sending his father Into
transports of delight.
"I do hope you won't work him too
hard at the office, Steve," said Mrs.
Maxwell.
"Bless your heart, wife, there won't
be an easier job at first under the sun.
But he'll want to work presently—It's
In our blood—and there'll be no holding him back."
"Mr. Reginald's room" was dusted
and aired every day now, ready for Its
tenant, and very often Mr. Maxwell
would steal Into It and gate round,
rubbing his hands and chuckling with
delight.
At length Reggie came down finally
from Oxford, and was told by bis father to have his fling for a month.
He obeyed readily, dining out and going to theatres nearly every night.
"I wish we saw more of our boy,"
said Mrs Maxwell one evening, her ex*
press Ion slightly worried.
"So wo Will wben he gets Into her-
," rejoined ber husband.
eh untied to himself a great deal
days, for he had n secret.   He
lered a motor which was to take
aad himself to the office and
■ If home every day.  Ugmeul
It to come as a great surprise to the
boy. snd he often pictured those Jour
ueys In Reggie's company.
One evening Reggie came down
dressed for a dinner at the Savoy,
when his father called to him from his
work-room. Reggie entered, bis tall
form clad In Immaculate evening dress
eoiitrastlng curiously with the little
man In bin somewhat shabby tweed
suit.
"What's the row, guv'nor? Mind my
smoking ?"
"Have one of mine, Reggie." exclaimed Mr. Maxwell eagerly, taking
down's box of cigars.
Reggie smiled In a slightly superior
manner.
"Thanks, guv.," he said, "but I pre*
fer my own. Car-rondel and I Import
them from Havana, you know."
"Lord Carrondel?" asked Stephen
Maxwell In lows ot awe.
"That's the boy," replied Reggie
cerelessly. "Hut what do you want me
for?"
"1 thought I'd Just tell you tbat your
month's holiday will lie up on Saturday, my boy."
Reggie frowned, and stared moodily
at the smoke of his cigar.
"Your room's all ready at Ihe office.
: you know."
j Mr. Maxwell begau to smile as be
wondered whether he should tell Reg-
] gle about the motor now; bul he decided to keep It as a glorious surprise
for Monday morning.
I "I've been meaning to speak to you
shout the business, guv'nor," began
Reggie slowly.
"What   ls   It. Reggie, want a bit
longer fling?" aaked Mr. Maxwell In
disappointed tones, for he bad been
looking forward ao much to Mondoy
' morning.
| "Pact Is," blurted out Reggie desper
' ately. "1 doa'r want to go Into the business at all."
I "Kh?" gasped bla rather.
i "I don't want to go Into trade. I
want to be In a profession," Reggie
went on. "What's the good of my getting a double first at Oxford If I'm to
be mewed up In s poky office all day?"
Mr. Maxwell gssed at his son. but
I no reply came to his lips. He felt aud*
tidily weary and broken. This was tbe
end of twenty-one years of hope. Hia
i face waa grey, hia throat full.
"1 want to read for th? Bar, guv'nor," said Reggie, still not daring to
meet his father's gate.
Mr. Maxw.tl gulped down the lump
I In his throat, and a sad little smile
crossed his (ace.
"The Bar. Reggie." he said slowly.
"You must tell me how to go about It."
"Father!"
Reggie was so amused that lis used
a term which hia friends would have
called "very middle class."
"Why, 1 thought you were ao been
on mc gores Into the office," he went
I "I thought you would hsve
Reggie, but—" he paused. "About ttts
Mar business," be added. "I suppose,
you wsnt to be s barrister?"
"Thai's the ticket, guv'nor. I'll toll
you all about It another night; can't
keep my party waiting. (Had you dont
mind.   Uood-night."
Without walling to bear weather
his father replied. Reggie strode Jaua*
illy Irom the room.   As s matter of
.act, bis father did not rspiy, he Just
sat down aud rested bla face on hln
arms.
He was In tbe same position an hour
later when bis wife came to look nt
him.
"Steve!" she cried. In alarmed tones.
"Steve!   Aren't you well?"
"It's all right, wife," be repMed. "I
was only thinking."
"Reggie and me have been talking,"
he added, "aud we think It'll he better
for him to—" he paused for a moment
to clear bis throat—"to go Into s profession, so he's going to be a barrister."
"Ob. Sieve, aren't you disappointed?"
"Just a little, wife, but. as long as
tbe boy is happy, we mustn't mind.
Wonder what Alice will think?" he
exclaimed suddenly.
"She'll be disappointed, Steve. Ws
all thought we'd see more of the boy
when be went into the business, but I
suppose he'll be out si much aa ever
now."
"Sometimes 1 think hs cares for her
more than he knows, wife," murmured
Mr. Maxwell. "But let's go down to
the girl. 1 expect she's wondering
what's become of ua I'll be down In n
minute, though, I've got a letter to
write."
The letter waa to tbe motorcar
rirm, asking them to countermand Ida
order and offering to pay compensation. He signed very heavily ss hs
sealed ths envelope, and putting his
hand to bis eyes bs found them wet
Monday morning he will never forget. He had thought ao much about
H, pictured it so often, that his Jour
ney on tbe underground was a torture
to him.
"Mr. Reginald's room Is all ready,
sir," said the managing clerk when
Stephen entered.
"Give me the key," answered Mr.
Maxwell, "my son will not be coming
Into the firm."
When all tho clerks had gone thst
evening, Mr. Maxwell went Into "Mr,
Reginald's room" and stood for a long
time staring at the empty chair. Then
he sighed wearily, and, walking from
the room, locked the door behind him.
Thenceforward he always kept ths ksy
lu his pocket, but never an evening
passed but he would visit tbe room.
People began to remark how frail
and old he bad suddenly grown, and
some spoke to him about It.
Meanwhile. Reggie Maxwell started
to read for the Bar, snd enjoyed ths
process Immensely. His father made
htm s handsome allowance, and, In
addition, gave him various presents ot
money from time to time.
His evenings st horns were very few
nnd far between, snd he generally
spent them st the piano with Alice, or
playing piquet with her.
Once or twice be took Alice out to
dine, snd her fresh beauty, In contrast
with the Jaded looks of the fashionable
ladles he met. rather opened his eyes.
He found himself watching her more
often, and bis evenings af home grew
a little more frequent.
His father bsd never said a word
about Maxwell and Son to him since
the evening when he had cut himself
adrift from tho business. Occasionally
Reggie thought of ll, only to decide
that his father had forgotten about It.

Again this week the Herald's columns tell eloquently uf ihe preparations made by Cranbrook merchants
Inr tin* Christmas shopping trade. Sn

eats du not look forward with    my
pleasurable   anticipation    in       the

and lack of   work.     Several       little
children    share this sorrowful sltui-

!»uring the past few days a great
ileal of earnest Work has been done
by public spirited citizens with a
view to securing candidates lot the
new council, in i,»- elected early in
the ut-w* year. The principle upon
which these gentlemen have been
working has been to secure mon,
generally respected and who have
proved, hy their business careers In
Hm* city, their fitness fur office, in
order to avoid anything in tbo nature of a taction light. Whilst they
have been successful In securing the
promises of six exceptionally strung
men tn slam! for aldermen, it hub si
far been Impossible tu obtain the ai
•writ nf any man tn accept the maj
oralty. Hopes had been entertained
ihat Dr. Green would this year accept nomination, which might im*.
been accepted as meaning election by
acclamation. Unfortunately, however, in Green found it Impossible
to entertain favorably the prnpnti-
tion, as be is leaving early In      the
New Vear Inr Europe and may      *■,■
absent   frnm     the city fnr      several
tnonths.    We understand that    pres-
suie will    be brought to bear    upon
Mr  .1. I). MoBrldo tu accept nomination for tlie mayoralty, than    whom
il would he difficult to select   among,
our progressive business men a- more
desirable   candidate.       It  is   understood    thai in event of Mr. MoBrldo
accepting    nomination, the lollowing
gentlemen   will agree to stand     lor
aldermen:   Alderman A. C, Bowness,
Alderman    McNabb    and   Alderman
Camobell, Messrs.    W, 11. Wilson, ■'.
It. Ward and Dr. 11. 13. Hall.    Without any    Intention of being invidious
We think Wo can fairly say that     it
WOUldi be hard to select a body      ol
men who could better administer   the
city's affairs    than those above mentioned.      The three aldermen      Who
would stand Im* re-election, have all
served   lhe   city     faithfully and elfl-
eiei.tly during the past year, not aol y
in     Uh* case of    Alderman Itowncss,
who has won fur   himself the respect
and esteem of many ratepayers   who
last year   did not favor his election.
The    three   new     men   are all well
known   as   good,     live,   progressive
business   men, whose services    could
not   fail to be other than valuable to
the city.    The Herald believes that if
the gentlemen mentioned could bo induced to   accept nomination the citizens   generally   would    gladly   elect
them by acclamation.    In the    present stage of the city's growth     the
one aim of    every citizen should    be
to   secure a strong business   council,
composed of men who will is* prepared to   devote iheir lime and abilities
unreservedly io the advancement     ot
the city.

Owing in the Intercsl manifested i»
[he coming Ancient Foresters "At
Home," tn be held iu the Auditorium
mi December    28th   next, it perhaps
would   nol   be OUt   tif plaee to briefly
refer t" some of the Ancients "mod1
tu history." Aa stated iu a previous issue, its lirst court instituted
indei modem or seml-motlern popdl-
lions was founded in the city of
Leeds, Knglaml, during the year
1790, but owing to tlie laws td the
country iu their relation to "secret
societies," the order did not make
much progress for some considerable
lime,       years       in fact.    The
second court was        not
formed until the year 1813, the
whole of the charter members lieing
natives of Asbton under Lyne, I
cashfre. Tin* following year another
court was opened in Ash ton. and
this court is today No. I of the
inlet, so that in a little more than
a year's time, Foresters iu tho old
laml will tn- celebrating the 100th an-
iversary of their existing oldest
ourt. The progress made from ihat
ime on was remarkable, so much so
t truth tlmt, eighteen years later, wc
iiml i lam doing business iu tbe
United States, Court Oood Speed,
So. 201, being chartered in Philadelphia iu the year 1832. In 1874
there were iu the United States
forty-three courts witb a total membership of 2,300, but during the following ten years the order was
somewhat disorganized owing to internal discord, brought about over
the color question. However, this
dillieulty wus overcome by a large
number of the American courts,
separating from the parent body, and
forming an organization of their own
Today A.O.K. courts In the States
0 limited to the whole of the
Pacific Slope, and those States lying
in tbe Atlantic seaboard, represent
ing n membership of approximately
10,11011 souls.
The first court in Canada was
pencd at the house of Mr. Isaac
Moflatt, Lombard St., Montreal, in
the year 1843, but it did not moke
much progress. During tbe follow**
int; 2K years it nn mon* than heid lis
own, but in 1871 n meeting ol old
country members who bud emigrated
to Camilla, was held at the Gloucester Anns, cornet of King ami Berkeley streets, Toronto, the chair being
occupied by Mr. Gosltn, night editor
of the "Toronto Globe," ami as a
result of this meeting, which was remarkable for its enthusiasm, Court
Hope of Canada was formed, Mr.
Goslln becoming one of its first offi-
Cecs. A few days later Court
Pioneer was opened in Ottawa, but it
was not until 1879 tbat a convention
of delegates was found necessary, two
years later the second convention
was called lo order in the city ol
Toronto, the delegates being wel*
corned by his worship ihe mayor,
Mr. W. n. McMurrick, and Aldermen
Hallam and Daniels, all being members of the order. From tnat time
onward progress has been tin* rule,
until today the A.O.F. has a membership in Canada of twenty
thousand,
The Canadian membership exult in
their affiliation with the grand rdd
rder in the motherland, on whose
courts "the sun never sets: whose
historical traditions are so rich wiMi
records ol Hritish efforts to bring
nearer our International Brother
hood of Man."

IHT CUTJP MEAN
Many Rrocers seem to Irvl that tlu*
only way to increase their sales is
Iiy decreasing their profits. Tne pro
nis tin lood stuffs are ridiculously
small, and lo cut those profits still
smaller In tbc hope ol Inducing liar-
irain-hunting customers to come to
one's place of business is the height
ol tolly. In every community there|
arc a large number ot people who
eali/e that It costs money to do
business, who arc willing that the
grocer should have a small pet cent
ol net profit and who arc willing to
pay (or quality, good service, kind
and courteous treatment, and tbc
business built upon this basis is
worth a dozen built upon the basis of
price-cutting. Tbc price cutter is a
tool or a dishonest man. He is a tool
when he cuts prices because of his
ignorance. He is a dishonest man
when ho cuts prices and then cheats
lhe customers In count, weight or
measure. What doth It profit
merchant tl, by price-cutting, he
gains tbe trade ol the entire community and loses his own money
thereby. 1 have very little regard
tor a business that bas nothing better to commend itscll to its patrons
than cut prices —Wlnlield Hart/ell,

TIMELY SUGGESTIONS FOR
THE CHRISTMAS SHOPPER
(Continued from page one),
Little and Atchtsun have Imported
big stock of Christmas confectionery and fruits. They will also make
a speciality of fresh green stuff for
the Christmas trade. Stockings for
the children, nicely filled and Xmas
tree decorations are other features ol
their stock.
Iv A. Hill and Co carry their
usual line the SOUi Century Clt thing
and Walkover shoes, which they consider make the best possible Christmas gifts, but for those requiring
something a little more tasty they
have a great display ot combination
sets of suspenders, neckwear, etc.,
handsomely boxed.
Campbell and Manning have as
usual an enormous stock of seasonable groceries, tastefully displayed
Their chinaware department is one of
the attractive features of their store
at this season and they are offering
some splendid Christmas presents In
Hie shape of hand-painted china,
-tlanimg's celebrated chocolates form
a specially attractive display, in
fancy limes, baskets, and in bulk.
At Mclliide's hardware store,    the
I skater will fmd all his needs well

Iiml a splendid stock ol cutlery ot the
fittest makes, ami for the sportsmen
guns of every description, etc., can
be found.
McCrecry Hros., both in their ladies' department und their men's department have made special provision
for the Christmas trade. In lhe
ladies' department one is struck by
the choice collection of handsome iiul
costly furs. There is also an exceedingly fine display td linens and
fancy goods. .Many handsome coats
tor ladies make a special feature of
their showing, which will hi* very
attractive to ladies generally. In the
men's department the gift seeker will
note tlu- lounge robes, dressing gowns
and slippers. Overcoats (or tho
small buy are another feature which
will attract parents. The slock of
suit eases and hand bags is large and
specially selected fur the Christmas
trade.
The Cranbrook Drug and Book
Store is displaying a very fine lint* of
ladies hand bags, specially selected
for the Christmas trade by Mr. Barber, a lim* af goods tbat cannot be
equalled and which will make exceedingly acceptable Christmas gifts. Mr.
Barber lias laid in an unusually big
stock of books, the latest editions ot
popular authors, in addition to a
large supply of handsomely bound
standard works. He has, too, a
very large stock of Bibles and church

Mr. Harris.
Om* ot the most acceptable presents for Christmas can be found

defence was that tho plainlifl had no

crop    of   trouble for   the following
three days, got all that was coming
to ihem in   tin* police conit on Tuesday.     These toughs had blown        i
from some of tin- camps south ol tl
Boundary and, uf course, wanted    t
allow the Canadian moss-baeks a few
touches of Yankee high lift* as understood In   this class of gentry.
As soon as tliey got sufficient!)
drunk to be nasty tbey started a
quarrel amongst themselves outside
the Manitoba hotel; then got inside
ami two of tbeia, who gave * their
names an Hart ami McCarthy started
an Impromptu ten round slugging
match. Mr. Brown, tho proprietor,
sought io put a .stop lo il, but the
third of this trinity of blackguards,
McPlkc, known as Sharkey, said that
he would M them lii'l:* and, apparently, net as general audience and re-
f.-tfc. When Brown took McCarthy
to tho door and put him oil thi*
premises Sharkey jumped on his neck
nml knocked him on tin* sidewalk
outside. Brown fought back as best
in- might while McCarthy skirmished
around trying lo kick, his head off.
Hail yelled to Sharkey to bite up
ami eat up Brown, A crowd gathered and two <f those present pulled
Sharkey off Brown who was badly
knocked about^ The disturbance np*
preached the dimensions of a small
riot when the police arrived, They
collected the offenders here and Uwt
in different bars around the city And
the story goes that the racket at the
Manitoba only whetted iheir appetite
for further bloodshed and battery.
They pleaded guilty to tho charge
of creating a disturbance on the public street, saving they were too
drunk to remember the particulars.
The evidence ol Mr. Brown, Charlie
Howard, and Alien Woodland, the
bar tender, proved the case amply.
Magistrate Ryan .said the facts
pointed to a most outrageous piece
of blackguardism, an intolerable at*
tack on a man who was doing bis
best to maintain a decent, properly
conducted house. He wished others
like llie accused to know that Cranbrook people would -not  tolerate such
offence's. Addressing Sharkey he
said be would send him lo Nelson
jail for four months.
"Aw, thank yel" interrupted Sbar*
key with a world of sarcasm in bis
t *.
"Well," said the magistrate,
"Since you    appear so much obliged

ONTARIO 6ENERAL ELECTIONS
Toronto, us usual, went strongly
Conservative, returning all its eight
members' to support Sir .lames Whitney us in the previous election. The
only doubtful contest was fur seat

Oliver, u strong Liberal ami former
mayor. Mr. Koy had a majority of
over live hundred. i

WHITNEY'S   MAJORITY SLIGHTLY REDUCED - TORONTO
SOLIDLY TORY.
Tlie Ontario provincial elections on
Monday resulted very much as was
expected, in the return of the administration of Sir James Whitney,
with a .slightly reduced majority of
lhe members of tlie legislature. Tbe
standing of the parties which in tbe
last house sHkmI 87 Conservatives, 18
Liberals and I Independent, will in
the next legislature be 82 Conservatives, 2:J Liberals and 1 Independent,
giving Sir James a majority of 58
over his Liberal and Independent opponents in a total of 106 seats as
compared witb a majority if <j5 iu
the last house.
The most important issue in the
campaign was the question of hi-lin-
gual schools but both parties handled
it with caution and its only visible
effect was in the two strongly French
ridings of Sturgeon Falls and Pres-
cott, where the Liberal candidates
were oleoted. The Liberal gains, 11
in all, comprised the following ridings: Center Hruce, Glengarry, East
Middlesex, Monk, North Norfolk,
South Ontario, Present t, Sturgeon
Kails, Kast Wellington and North
Went worth.
The six Conservative gains were:
East Ottawa, South Perth, Kast
Shncoc, Stormoiit, West Wellington,
South Wentworth.
Practically all the Liberal gains
were registered in constituencies
Which prior to the Conservative landslide in 1905 had been strongly Libera'.
Hon. R. W. Rowell, K.C, new
leader of the Liberal party and Hon.
A. (1. Mackay, the former leader,
were elected by .substantial majorities
in their respective ridings of Nortii
Oxford ami North Orey.
Allan Studhohnc, the only In-
dependent member who has sat in tlie
legislature Blncc the days when the
Patrons cf Industry were a factor in
politics, was elected on the Labor
ticket for the third time in East

1 Mr. F. Beveiell, formerly en-direc-
loi with Mr. Arnott. In the llrilish
Empire Agency, the parent company,
of the Kootenay Itiver Land company, who recently visited Baynes
Lake and math* a thorough inspection
o ilu* land, has resigned his position
with the B. E* Agency, and joined
wiih Mr. Arnott in the organization
of this new company, which has purchased tho Interests ol the Kootenay
. River Land   company, and will here-
'after devote his attention to Canadian business.
I The Herald learns that Mr. Arnott has formed another company   in
I London, of which he is managing director, wbieh will start business    In
. Ihe new year, and whose interests
will he devoted very largely to    tho
j development and colonization of East
(Kootenay. It is Mr. Arnott's Intention to make Cranhrook tlie center of his operations, from whence he
will    conduct an  active   advertising
campaign,
Mr. Arnott's new company has
taken splendid offices in the very
heart nf London, which, It Is inti-
[mated, will be always at the convenience of visiting East Kootenaians.
j lu the course of a communication
from Mr. Arnott. outlining his plans,
just received  by the Herald, be says:
''Another polnl which will interest
you is that not only is my company
going to bo most Infernally strict
about the buna (Wes of the properties it sells, hut it is going also to
tin its best to see that the buyers are
such as wilt benefit the tlistriet.
"Having been tnrough the mill myself I know what the first impressions of a new arrival are, how much
there is for him to learn, ami how
difficult it is fnr an absolatcly Inexperienced man In start fanning right
away. To do something to Improve
matters we have now entered Into
negotiations to take ovei a 200 acre
farm in England where intending
set I lets in East Kootenay can first
learn with American tools antl harness in attend to horses, plough.
harrow, plant and harvest the common licit! crops, milk and attend to
cattle, and learn something of pigs

elementary Instruction will he given,
which will enable the man the lol-
lowing year in go out to B.C. with
some idea as to bow In get through
the lirst stages nf handling a farm
for himself. This deal is not yet
concluded but I have small doubt
it will be. I am strongly in favor
of it ns it will enable mc to send
out in ymi settlers a Utile less ran
antl Inexperienced than are usually
met with—consequently they will
grumble less and succeed better,"
Unprecedented activity prevails iu

such a congested state that if another contract were not booked there
would be enough work to keep the resources of the three big armament

CANADIANS ATJWESTMINSTER
NEXT CONSERVATIVE  CABINET
MAY INCLUDE SEVERAL
CANUCKS.
A London press correspondent
writes: "Tenacity is the word which
most adequately sums up the character of Bonar Law," said a Canadian who sits at Westminster, "and
it Is this characteristic which ha
aroused th.* wonderful enthusiasm
among the Conservatives and the
faith that his leadership will bring
the party from opposition to office.
"The new appointment hears a
much deeper significance. I believe it
presages that Canadian*, will have a
much bigger sphere of Influence in tlw
British parliament and that it will
attract to pnlit les here ('unadi.tn
men of leisure and wealth who Will
worthily represent tlie Dominion in
the mother of parliaments."
This opinion is shared by many
prominent Canadians here anil gives
cause for the liveliest satisfaction.
Tbe bouse of commons lias received
an accession of siren1 ith in tht* number of Canadians who have gained
seats there and during the last election it was observed that tiny bore
heavy part oi the flght. The
most spectacular event of course
was the daring action of Bonar Law
who left a safe retreat to invade hostile Free Train* territory. Then there
wns the unprecedented light wbieh
in a few weeks made the political
reputation of Sir U. M. Ailkeii, until then unknown in political circles.
But these were only outstanding features which denoted that Canadians
were waging iu politics the same
virile light that they do in every
ither arena in which they strive.
Canadians who have heard debates
in the commons have been Impressed
with the cordial reception accorded
to Canadian members. The house
has been called the most critical assembly in the world nnd it may he
laken that the favorable impression
made by men from the Dominion Is
due lo their ability as legislators.
Frequently the bouse expresses Us
boredom hy leaving a member to
address half empty benches, but never
is this the case when a Canadian
speaks. When Sir Gilbert Parker or
lamar Greenwood rises he has the
satisfaction of au attentive ami even
cn-pr audience.
Certainly Canadians have won
their spurs nt Westminster. This
makes the forecast that under Uonu
Law   Canadians    will attain cabinet
rank, a    reasonable one.    Must     nf
1 them like    Sir Gilbert Parker      and
Dnnaltl    McMaster have proved   thei.
skill in    the difficult field ol     com-j
mittee as   well as on the lloor of the
bouse and on   the hustings. Mr. Balfour had a great admiration tor   tho]
ability of   Sir W. M. Aitkin and Sir.
Ollberf Parker   is reasonably sure of
cabinet rank in the next Conservative
administration.
The Canadians who sit on lhe Liberal side of the house are no less
brilliant. Men like liamar (Irevn-
wood, -I. Allen Uaker and the Hon.
Joseph Martin are steadily graduate!
ing for high positions in the party.
I learn    that    it   is   probable that'
more  Canadians   wiil lie Invited    to
Beck seats at   Westminster at       the
next general election.     The invitation
extended by an Influential peer to W.'
P. Bull, K'. C,, ul Toronto, when  he
was here, will likely be renewed, ami j
others   who took  a part   in the lasi
elections  will also   have   the opportunity ot Contesting! English seats. It'
Is common knowledge that if he evei j
cares   to   leave the   attractions    of
British   Columbian politics thu Hon.
It. McBride can have a prominent position   in any     Conservative government, but 1 understand ihat wben he
was here [n the summer he resolutely
refused to   consider leaving the leadership nf bis party al Vlctor'a.

Restored to Health by Vinol
1 Rev. D. Schneider, who Is a well
: known minister in Rles Lake, Wis.,
| writes:
)     "1 had a very severe stomach trouble last year from which I was kapt
' in bed three months. I  hail engaged
, tho services of a doctor, but to no
: avail. I then read of Vlnol and determined to try a bottle. Hefore it was
used up I was out of bed. and four
bottles made me a well man. Vlnol is
a splendid medicine, and 1 can gladly
recommend It."
Prominent men from all over tha
country do not hesitate to endnrso
this wondoful tonic.
Por twelve years Vlnol has been
| aold on tho "money bark" plan, and
every year strengthens Its popularity
nnd proves by continued tents that It
will do what we claim for tt.
