To the Mayor and Aldermen, Cranbrook, B:C.
Oentlemen: I have pleasure In submitting for your consideration nnnual
report of work carried out by the
City Engineer's department during thc
year 1914.
Streets and Lanes
During thc year 1914 n considerable
amount of street and alley grading
was done. Some of this work war
light cut but In a number of thc
streets tiiere were some fairly heavy
cuts. The total length of grading wan
2.43 miles street work and 3.67 miles
of nllcy work. Added to this there
was about 0.7 miles of street crowned
1913 for tho same period two hundred
and twenty-one (221) were thawed
and In 1912 one hundred end eleven
(111) were thawed. In December
seventeen services were thawed out
on tho old wood pipe system.
During the year 6 leaks were repaired on the distributary system and
54 on the supply mains.
Throe hydrants were replaced during the year on account of defects.
Two Corey hydrants replaced with
Ludlow type and one Matthews type
replaced with Pratt and Cadytype.
Water was turned off on 101 services and turned on eighty-one services during tbe year.
Six new services were Installed during thc year. The number Is less
than In former years, due to the financial conditions retarding building
Estimates were prepared last
spring for a new steel pipe system to
roplace tho present wood pipe. It
was Intended to start the work on
August 16th, but on account of the
money market tailing through the
war, thu work was not started until
September 28th. Tho work Is fully
covered by Mr. Mcculloch's report to
Ono hundred and ninety-one (191)
services have been changed over to the
steel pipe system. Of this number
one hundred and one (101) have been
lowered, somo on account of streets
being graded and the others on account ot freeslng up each year.
Four hundred and thirty-two feet of
' sewer waa laid on Van Horne
street and 400 feet of 6" sewer On
East Dewar lane In block 34, also two
manholes were built, thus completing
the scheme originally laid out for a
sanitary sewerage system for the
Dlspsoal Works
It being necessary to cleanse the
top layer of coarse gravel In the
primary filter at the disposal works
this was done In the manner described ln monthly report of May 12th.
Although no appropriation was
made for the work, It was deemed advisable to remove growth tn the sec-'
ondary filter. This also was done
js described In report ef May 12th.
Sludge bed was also cleaned at lhe
time the above work was done, two
feet ot sludge being removed.
Siding around primary filter was
removed In April for ventilation purposes during the summer months and
wsj replaced before the cold weather
set In.
Trays over the primary filters were
cleaned off twenty-fire times during
.he year and works generally maintained.
During the year 13,460 feet of main
tower and 12,460 feet ot branch fewer
were cleaned. All blanch sewers
were flushed out.
Eleven leaks In manholes were repaired and twenty-eight manholes
were altered where grading bad been
Plonbleg Permits
Forty-six plumbing permits were
granted during the year, you will observe that this number Is much less
.bun last year, when one hundred permits were Issued, but this condition
was to be expected, taking into consideration the financial situation of
the past year.

Mr. Alb. H. Webb reported progress
made with the market, and the meeting was addressed by Mr. C. B. Ward,
the chairman of thc market committee. He outlined the schemes
tbat were at present In front of the
committee and asked for suggestions
trom those present at the meeting.
Mr. Parham, tho superintendent of the
Dominion experimental farm in the
Invermere district related the experience of the Invermere farmers with
a market. They had tried an agent
who received and disposed ot all produce. The agent found difficulty In
disposing ot the surplus that was
usually left at the end of the day.
Then with regard to prices: Some
brought produce to market in excellent condition and there was no difficulty In getting rid of it. Others
brought It but paid no heed to the
condition of the stuff, yet although
tbis was thc drag on thc market they
expected to receive just as good a
price as those who bought thc best.
He thought the Cranbrook plan of as
many as possible standing with their
own produce and then u market agent
taking charge of any other stuff that
might be brought In by farmers who
had either not the time, ability or Inclination to make good salesmen
would be ln advance of their scheme.

of Geo. F. Stevenson, W. B. McFarlane
and J. B. Hall. The returning
officer acting on the advice
of the city solicitor threw
out the objection against Mr. Stevenson and uphold thc objections against
Mr. McFarlane and Mr. Hall, declaring Messrs. Clapp, Stevenson, Erickson, Jackson, Balment and Leask duly
elected by acclamation.
The nominees for school trustees
wero Wm. Henderson, Harry White,
Ira K. Manning and J. Henry Spence.
Mr. Spenco withdrew hlc name and tho
returning officer declared thc other

Interests of the city can only be served by everyone pulling together. A
number of important matters are tu
come before tlie Cranbrook public ln
the near future, matters of Immense
public Interest, which will need the
support of every citizen. Like many
small towns the city possesses a
coterie of grouches, men who kick
and rebel at everything for the city's
good unless they can have tlieir own
way. Just at this time when the nation Is iu peril and small things may
count for great ends every citizen
should be patriotic enough to forget
small differences and work for the
public good. Mayor Bowness Is ln a
position to accomplish much In tills

the support of all good citizens und
that a welding of community effort in
the right direction will result.
The thanks of the city are dn. thc
members of the lettrlng city council

past, most strenuous year. There
has been a great amount of discussion of the city council during the
past year, In connection with the
starting ot the city's now waterworks.
Numerous mistakes wore undoubtedly
made but they were largely the result
of the conditions of the year and not
nf the heads or hearts of the city fathers. These men have worked hard lo
protect the city and at the same time
to get tlie work underway as quickly
as possible.

; In company In order tbat they may be
appreciated. I consider that our executive acted wisely In bringing In
! Judge Orr for our show, aB he gave
us a good Idea as to the merits of
our birds and only regret that time
did not permit ot his having more
time at his disposal after the show in
order that he might have talked Individual birds with tho exhibitors, but
thiB Is our first. Just await the next!
I am pleased to be able to report that
the show proved self-suBtainlng, taking Into consideration the $100.00
grant from the B.C. association. Gate
receipts $12.50, and the additional
membership which it brought In. Of
course had it not been for the agricultural association giving us free use
of the new poultry building and ribbons at reduced prices the report
would have been different.
In conclusion I must ask you to
' accept my thanks for your assistance
I during the year Just closed and I also
' ask you to donate more of your time

! To  the  Members of the  Cranbrook
Poultry and Pet Stock Association:
{Ladles and Gentlemen:
|    It Is with pleasure that I find the
; finances of the association In such a
! good condition.     Much credit Ib due
I to your secretary and the directors.
I would suggest that where petty
cash payments are made by the *ec-
retary, he record same on a stul in
cheque book and Issue a cheque for
total amount payable to himself thus
saving trouble with vouchers, etc.
Believe me, your obedient servant,
Alb. H. Webb.
After the reading ot the several re-
; ports, which were received, the as\oc-
| lution passed a hearty vote of thanks
' to the officers for their splendid work
; and Interest In the association during
I the year.
In this connection we would like tc
say a word. Under the guidance of
the president, Mr. A. B. Smith, and
the secretary-treasurer, Mr. W. W.
McGregor, the Cranbrook Poultry association has made marvelous progress during their term of office.
These gentlemen have been good
workers for the organization, and It
was with reluctance that we learned
of their desire to be relieved ot office.
The association did well ln placing
; on record Its hearty approval of
their work. We believe that A. B.
Smith nnd W. W. McGregor have been
; thc most capable and earnest workers
the association haB had thus far.
A vote of thanks was also tendered
Mr. A. H. Webb as auditor and in
connection with the boys potato competition carried out last spring.
The election of officers resulted as
Hon. President—T. J. Doris.
;    Hon. Vice-President—A. M. Beattie,
; Waldo.
President—B. Palmer.
-   Vice-President—W. Harvey.
Secretary-Treasurer—A. H. Pigott.
Directors—A. H. Webb, C. R. Shep-
i pard, E. T. Cooper, A. B. Smith.
Delegate to B. C. Poultry Association—W. W. McGregor. Alternate—
: B. Palmer.
Mr. Palmer was elected to repre-
; sent the association on the public
| market committee. A general dls-
I mission on this subject then took
; place. After the pros, and cons had
; been threshed out, It was carried that
j the delegate be given a free hand and
! to use his own discretion In deciding
Important matters which would cven-
! tuully come beforo the market com-
' mlttee.
Mr. C. R. Sheppard thought thc time
had arrived when the Poultry association should purchase a lot in the
city and erect a building for holding
Us meetings and shows. This matter will be brought up again at a
later meeting.
Mr. W. W. McGregor, the retiring
secretary, showed his Interest in the
association by donating his salary for
the year toward Its funds, stating lt
would be a "nest egg" for the new
Mr. A. L. Barnhardt, ot Glenllly,
a poultryman with a good reputation,
waB present and addressed the meeting, dealing with conditions ln his
home town and stating he would ln
future keep the association posted as
to developments In Glenllly In future,
It was moved and seconded that
the president prepare a list of subjects for the winter meetings.
The question of eggs for the boys
hatching competition was brought up
by Mr. Shoppard. He thought thut
next year tho boys should pay the
sum of $1.00 for a setting of eggs, instead of 50c. and that tho association
should appoint two members to test
the eggs. A report wlll be brought
ln by the executive committee bearing on the subject.
The executive committee will wait
on the city council with a view to
securing the council chamber as a
place of meeting.
A matter of general Importance to
poultrymen, especially ln the sale of
their product, was brought up by Mr.
C. R. Sheppard. It concerns tbe
more attractive way of putting up
eggs for sale ln the city. 'He.suggests that the eggs be put up In cartons, neatly printed, bearing the
name of the association. Mr. Shop?
pard was of the opinion that the poultry Industry had developed to the
point where the system of moro attractive means must be taken to display the product. Mr. Shcppard's
tolls a good story and has It all cut
and dried. This matter will come up
In thc noar future for further hearing.
Others who spoke on the subject were
C. H. Knocko, T. S. GUI, A. B. Smith
and B. Palmer.

The above Is a portrait of Mr.
George F. Stevensou, the .Managing
Director of tlu* Crnnbrook Jobbers
Company, and a probable candidate
at the coming Conservative Convention for the representation of East
Kootenay in the Federal House. His
party is to be congrutuluted on the
selection they have mnde, that is, assuming our Information to be true, of
a man of brains and ability both in
business and in public affairs. We
believe we are correct in stating that
Mr. Stevenson Is as well thought of ln
Fernie as he Is in Cranbrook and that
he will command the unanimous and
active support of every man In the
district of the Conservative faith
whose support counts for anything.
Though opposed to us In politics we
are bound to admit that Mr. Stevenson possesses tlte power of Impressing his personality wherever he goes
and that he will prove a foemun
worthy of the steel of uny political opponent.

—A Good Program
The question of raising money for
the boys at the front, thajt Is money
with which to purchase little remembrances and comforts from time to
time has been agitating the minds of
the local members of the 107th Regiment for some time. The men here
are not being paid and a good many
are unable to make any donation to
such a fund and so the officers of the
Volunteer Club have hit upon the plan
of holding a monthly patriotic concert for raising funds for this pur-
The first concert Is to be held In '
the Edison theatre on next Saturday j
evening, January 16th, at 8.30 p.m. An
excellent program has been arranged
and a nominal admission fee of 25
cents will be charged.
It ls only a short while since the
Cranbrook boys left home and friends
to go out and fight ln your defence.
Remember how only a few short
months ago we assembled at the sta- j
tion to bid good-bye Hnd God-speed to
the noble boys of this city who answered the call of Britain? Are you as
loyal and patriotic today as you were
then? Remember how yon cheered
and waved your hat as the train pulled out? Remember how. In a drenching rain, you stood around waiting
for the train which would convey the
boys off? What did a little rain matter
to us that day? Cranbrook surely
did her duty In this icgard. Hut we
are not done yet. On Saturday evening tn the Kdison theatre thc 107th
boys are holding a concert, the proceeds of which will be used to purchase n few little presents for the
Cranbrooks boys at the front. Keep
your enthusiasm alive by attending thc

some haughty damsels, some classy

a motley assortment from all corners
of the world. A stringed orchestra,
under the able directorship of Mr. T.

(Spectacular Production by This Well
Known Company
Two large houses greeted the Pantages here this week at the Auditorium on Wednesday and Thursday
evenings. The Russian dancers were
the headline™ of the bill and were the
best ever seen ln thia city. "The War
of the Tongs" proved an interesting
und spectacular production with an
atmosphere that was strictly Oriental.
Tho other acts on the bill were exceptionally good. Six numbers completed the program, the longest show
this circuit has provided ln this city
since they added Cranbrook to their
circuit, the bill lasting two hours and
twenty minutes.
Vaudeville shows gain lu popularity
every year because they provide a
light sort of mental relaxation with
picturesque und pleasant setting and
are patronized by thc general public
more generously than the more heavy
and costly productions. The popular
prices also help to draw full houses.
The Pantages circuit Is one of thc best
of thc vaudeville houses and they
have a string of theatres from coast
to coast through the United States In
Cunadu.    •
Cranbrook has proven in thc past
that they appreciate the advantage of
being on this circuit and so long as
Ihey bring attractions similar to the
one this week they will find a responsive and appreciative public.

"Those things that are behind."
Philip 3:13.
1914 haa gone; 1915 Is here.
"The months from which wc hoped
so much
Have gilded from us at our touch.
I won't say that 1914 yielded what
we expected from tt. Indeed, for most
people lt has been a disappointing
year. What bright hopes have been
shattered, what splendid dreams have
not materialized, what magnificent
"castles In Spain" have crumbled, God
alone knows.
The pacificists have been rudely silenced, and their cry of "pence, peaco"
has been replaced by the ominous, and
sickening "boom, boom" of a thousand
cannon. When 1914 dawned we were
told by wise men that a greater harmony than ever existed between the
nations; but the closing months revealed that we had been living In n
false security.
It has also boon a disappointing year
for business men. Many living In
comparative wealth at the outset of
the year are today beggars. The honest tradesman or manufacturer thus
circumstanced has our profound sympathy; tint the grafters ud real estate ebarkJ, wbo Uve been brought ta

1914 has been a disappointing year

Note briefly two considerations of
the past.
1. IT Is Irrevocable. What we said
tn 1914 remains recorded; what we
did cannot be undone. Said Omar
Khayyam long ago :
"The moving finger writes, and having writ

If posible, and forget It memory permitted. What caused the remorse of
Judas? Just what lay behind, and the
fact that the past was Irrevocable!
What gave the rich man In Hades such
uncomfortable pangs? Just his memory of what lay behind and his knowledge that the past could not be undone! 'We should all remember that
"the things that are behind" are behind, they cannot be effaced, annihilated or undone.
2. The past may be forgiven even
tf lt cannot be undone. For tills Christ
came, for this he died, for tills he lives.
Surely It ts god news to know tha*. the
"tilings that are behind" muy bc forgiven. Let us all begin 1915 ussured

To clean the rabbit carefully take
the skin off. Then pull the hind legs
apart, which unjolnts the hips; cut
thorn off. Then cut off the end of tho
backbone, nnd throw away, as this
part is strong and lt affects it all
when cooked. Clean the body part
well, and cut ln pieces to suit the
taste. Now put lt ln salted wator and

water and drop the pieceB In. Put

The bones can readily be taken out
