VOUUME    27
Cranbrook, B.C.
October 16 and   17
Balance Over
From Fall Fair
Thanks to Popularity Contest
Finances Are in Good
Tuesday evening last a special
meeting of the Agricultural Association was held iu the office^ A. C.
Hay, when the principal matter thai
cnme up for consideration waa receiving tho secretary's report on tbe
fall celebration put on by thc association, and to pass a number of
accounts in connection therewith, as
well as to set a date for the annual
meeting, nnd the election of officers
for the ensuing yenr.
It is with no smull amount of
pleasure that it can bc reported that
the fair this year was not only successful from the standpoint of exhibits, but was also concluded with
the balance on the right side of the
ledger by something over $500.00.
It will also be a pleasure to a good
many to know that it was unanimously the opinion of those present thnt
the fall fair should not be abandoned, but that vigorous steps be taken
to insure its continuance, it being
felt that with tho experience of recent fairs to guide thorn, Cranbrouk
4-btrict is in a position to put on a
fair that should be second to none,
except the three big fairs at the
coast. Opinion of those competent
to judge was that thc class of material on exhibition at the Cranbrook
fair was superior to that at other
fairs, the quantity only being lacking. It was felt that this fault was
one that could be easily remedied.
To this end several suggestions were
made by members present. Besides
these there are many other very encouraging aspects of thc situation
that should prove conducive to the
holding of a fair again in Cranbrook
for the district. Other place* conduct them successfully where the opportunity is not as great as here.
Among the points in favor of the
fair are the following:
As a result of Mr. Hay's attendance nt the meeting of the Associated Fair Boards, it is likely thut Cranbrook will he pladed in Class B, instead of Class C, as at present. The
value of this is that tbe Government
grant to lhe fair will bo greatly increased. The treasury wil nlso hnve
creused. The treasury will also have
ledger to start next season's operations. The success of the boys nnd
girls of the district in the mutter of
stock raising and judging,   it   was
thought, practically demands thut
some evidence of the district's ability to produce the best in slock and
produce worthy of being shown
should he given.
With the assurance Hint the section under the supervision of tho
women will itext yenr be something
that in itself will be worthy of n
jnueli larger fair than Cranbrook
ccWd ever hope to have, and the ri-

The Maple Hall on Thursday, Oc
tober 1, was lhe scene nf groat so
cud activity at the meeting of the
Burns Club. A good number of
new members were enrolled, and
the gmicra! impression was thnt it
bids fair to exceed last year's membership. After the regular business
was concluded, the evening was
spenl in a social time, songs, lustra
mental music and readings being the
order of  the  evening.
Tbe various members who contributed to tbe evening's enjoyment
were Mrs. McCallum, Mrs. Bunks,
Mr. Emslio, Mr. Graham and Mr.
Hnlcrow, while Mrs. Noble and Mrs.
Coutts assisted ut the piano. Refreshments were served by thc rearrangements were made by the
executive for tho big time on St. Andrew's Night, November 27. The
meeting then adjourned with the
singing of "Auld Lang Syne."
On Business in Creston
Mr. McCosham, mnnager of the
Crystal Dairy, was a business visitor
in Creston for a couple of days this
valry that is springing up among the
boys and girls in various lines of endeavor, it only remains for an oc-
tive committee to get out first class
exhibitions of stock nnd agricultural
products.    „.
Tho report of the secretary showed
that some of the supposed attrao
tions were far from successful, and
that from a money making standpoint they were very much the re-
Verse. This applied this year to the
horse races, thc baseball games, the
athletic sports and a Second dance.
As was pointed out also by^the
secretary, the popular girl contest
was the committee's savior, financially. It was estimated that had it
not been, for this very profitable
sideline, the board would doubtless
be fncing a loss of some three or
four hundred dollars. In appreciation of this fact, tne' committee passed u resolution that the managers
nnd contestants of this contest, as
well as others who helped to make
tho fate a success, be thanked by the
board, the secretary being instructed to write them1 to this effect.
A resolution was also put and
passed thanking tlw secretary, Mr.
Hay. and his assistant, Miss F. Noble, for the very efficient work performed by them in connection with
the fuir. \ A small amount was voted
to ihem as an honorarium.
The financial statement, which will
published later, showed n healthy
surplus. Tho popular girl contest
was the menus of raising n nice surplus for lhe association, though thc
expenses front it were some $600,
Including lbe  prizes.
It was decided by the meeting to
bold a general meeting and supper
at the K. 1*. Hall, if possible, on the
Ird of November, when the matter
if the holding of a fair next year
will be definitely determined. Everyone is invited to this meeting.
Great Headway Being Made
In East Where Many Seats
WH Be Gained
Ottawa.—With the Conservative
candidates nominated or practically
designated and at work in 230 of the
246 constituencies, there is an opportunity for a national survey of
the political situation as the campaign enters the last phase. In the
present contest there will be Conservative contestants in 240 of the 245
constituencies, while it is doubtful
if there will be more than 200 definite supporters of the King government in the fold. This in itself indicates the strong swing to the Conservative party.
- Then there is the scurry to cover
of the cabinet ministers. The Conservatives have practically "bottled
up" three-fourths of the ministers in
their constituencies In which they
are so hard pressed that they are refusing alt calls to come over and
help other candidates. In Nova
Scotia, Hon. E. M. MacDonald deserted Pictou for Antigonish-Guys-
boro and finds he has not improved
his chances. Whoever is chosen as
representative from New Brunswick
will be in an equally Insecure position.
It is doubtful if a single cabinet
minister, including the premier, will
win through fn Ontario. Hon. Geo,
P. Graham dare not leave South
Essex for a day, and Hon. G. N.
Gordon in Peterboro and Hon.
Thomas Low in South Renfrew are
in the same plight in-their constituencies. Hon, Vincent Hassey will
be defeated by a thousand of a majority In Durham, and from North
York comes reports that H. Lennox
has already taken the prime minister's measure. Hon. James Murdock
is visiting other constituencies, as it
matters little whether the majority
against him in High Park, Toronto,
is six or seven thousand.*
Western ministers arc likewise
bottled up tn their constituencies.
Hon. W. R. Motherwell deserted Regina for Melville, and is seeking to
save that seat by a personal canvass.
Hon. Charles Stewart is bottled up
in West Edmonton, and Dr. J. H.
King is fighting hard "in West Kootenay in the hope that he may save
his owp constituency from the general wreck. In Quebec ministers for
a time haw a freer hand, but the
contest is becoming keener, and
Messrs. Lapointe and Cardin will
soon be fn tlie same plight a^ their
colleagues in other provinces.
The government is sadly in need
of capable speakers, as little can be
expected from ministers fighting for
their own political existence. It is
different with the Conservatives.
While Mr. Meighen is in the west,

$800 TO BE MET
The Baptists of Cranbrook finance
their church by the froe-will offerings of those who worship with them.
They believe there is a special olcs-
sing on offerings freely given "The
Lord loveth a cheerful giver."
About two years ago they expended
some $3,000 in improvements in
their church building, the payments
on which have been promptly met as
they became due. Thei c still remains an indebtedness of $800 now
due. Last Sunday the pastor announced lhat this indebtedness would
be cleured off on Octoher 20th, and
that he would bo in the church to
receive the offerings of those who
wished to contribute and would remain there until the debt wus raised.
He boasts that he has always counted
with confidence on the support of his
people. "But," he says, "if you
keep me prisoner longer than midnight on the 20th, I may have to
change my opinion of you."

Hon. Gideon Robertson, Hon. Hugh

national reputation in industry, agriculture, finance nnd labor in exposing the results of the King administration. It will .he the greatest and
most effective campaign ever waged
in Canada's political history.
Much is expected from lhe array
of brilliant orators in Quebec, who
will launch and press home the attack on the King government. There
will be Hon. K. L. Pntenaude, without a pear in that province since the
passing of Sir Wilfrid Laurier. In
the fight nre Hon. Andre Fnuteux,
Mayor Duquette, R. S. White, John
Sullivan, Romeo Lunglois, Sir Geo.
Parley, Armand Lavergnej L. J.
Gauthier, John Hnckett nnd many
others. The Liberals even in Quebec cannot compete with the Conservative- lenders in the fight.
Messrs. Lapointe nnd Cardin arc bitter in denunciation but weak in defence, while Messrs. Cannon and
Botvin are untried and practically
unknown. The Liberals are also
chilled by the defection of Sir Lower
Gouin nnd the scarcely concealed indifference of Premier Taschereau.
It is not now a question of the
largest group but what Mr. Meigh-
en's majority will be over the motley
ai'tay of Liberal freo traders, Liberal
Iprotectionists, "Ginger" Progressives and Forks Progressives.
Reports to Conservative headquarters assure Mr. Meighen of a mini-
.mum of 22 from the maritime provinces, 25 from Quebec and 70 from
Ontario, or before he counts his
supporters elected from the four
western provinces he will have at
least H7 supporters and quite possibly 125.
It is expected here that his majority over all will be about double the
number of representatives he secures from Manitoba. Alberta, Saskatchewan and British Columbia.
Tbe erection of the drinking fountain recently started in the new
('ranbrook playgrounds was completed this week.
While a name plate on the fountain Indicates thnt it is n presentation from thc Imperial Order
Daughters of the Empire, many have
been Inquiring as to whether a
branch of this order existed in the
city. For the information of those
who are recent arrivals in the city
it is stated that during the war
the Crunbrook branch of the I.O.D.
E, functioned vigorously in the city,
much valuable work being done by
them. As they organized here simply for Red Cross work, it was decided at the conclusion of the war
to disband. At their last meeting it
was decided that thc money then In

time forming'* memorial to the work

the matter was put in definite shupe
and the form for the memorial and
its location settled upon. The contract was awarded Mr. J. S. Wilson,
of Creston, for the erection of the
fountain and to Delany & Sinclair
for the installation of the automatic

that today the playground park has

the donors and a valuable addition
to the playground equipment. It is
of interest to know that placed inside the fountain is an earthenware
dish which has been sealed and
which contains a synopsis of the
work done by the Cranbrook branch
of the I.O.D.E., with one of their
pins and an old coin. The opening
ceremony has not as yet been decided
upon, but it is expected that this
will, take place at the same time of
the official opening of the playground. The cost of the fountain,
it is understood, is approximately
Friday evening last the Parish Hall
was the scene of a very pleasing
function, when the members of the
Cranbrook Lawn Tennis Club held
their annual dance. While the attendance was not as large us on former occasions, those present had n
very enjoyable time. The music for
the evening was supplied by the Syncopated Strollers, whose selections
and rendering were particularly
pleasing. Besides thc dancing the
big event of the evening was the
awarding of the prizes to the various
winners in the season's club competitions, which was of much interest
to those present.
His worship Mayor Roberts, who
wns present, after u few words of
congratulation to the club, announced the winners, who on coming forward were presented with their
prises by Mrs. (Dr.) King. Not the
least pleasing part of the evening's
entertainment was the serving of the
tempting refreshments.

On Thursdny evening last the Pythian Sisters held a most enjoyable
whist drive and basket social and
dance in their Castle HaU. While
the attendance was not as large as

had, the sale of thc baskets netting
a good sum, and the dancing was
thoroughly enjoyed. Robinson's Orchestra provided thc music therefor.
The winners of the prises for the

Mr. A. Holdener.
The photo-play, "Zcehruggo," put

at the Star Theatre was thoroughly
appreciated by thc patrons of the
popular play house. Saturduy evening two crowded houses greeted its
presentation. The fact that the
picture had the endorsement of the
British Navy department undoubtedly had a lot to do with the appeal
which the picture had. While lee

resources of the West. Equalize freight rates
westward, and you will have turned the key that
unlocks the door to prosperity.
Kis famous Order-in-Council is concrete
evidence that he means to carry out this policy.
The Order reads:
"The Committee are of the opinion that
the policy of equalization of freight rates
should be recognized as being the only
means of dealing equitably with all parts
of Canada, and as a means of encouragement of industry and agriculture, and the
development of export trade."
Contrast this policy with the statement
of Mr. Meighen, which his followers - the
Conservative candidates-will be compelled to
support by reason of the pledges of the Conservative candidates in the East. Mr. Meighen
"There has been a measure of relief for
the West by reason of equalization of
freight rates, which is utterly indefensible."
There you have the policy as it will be applied to the West, of the two parties who now ask
your endorsation. The policy of the Liberal
candidates is to populate the West. Population will come where it is profitable to live.

A definite example of what these discriminating rates are costing the West-as they
affect the fruit growers of British Columbia-is
found in these figures:
From Grimsby to Montreal it is 390 miles-
and the rate is 95c per 100 lbs.
From Vernon to Calgary, it is 340 miles-
and the rate is $2.40 per 100 lbs.
The same discrimination is applicable to
all lines of Western production. This is start-
lingly evident when you ascertain that in the
six years previous to 1921, the West contributed
$174,000,000 net profit to the Canadian Pacific
Railway - while the East, with its greater population, contributed but $81,500,000~less than

Mt, passed through Calgary, Thursday, from New York, Montreal and
Ottawa, to his farm at Lacombe.
"Are you not going to wait," a
Herald man'asked him, "to hear the
prime minister speak?"
"Would any sensible man with
real grain to thresh;" he answered,
"waste his time listening to a man
merely threshing the wind?" That
is what Mackenzie King has been
doing right along.
"Ue has nothing more practical to
say than 'Get into my party! Let
me put the curb bit in your mouth
so I can drive you easier—confound
your independence!"
"As an old Liberal I can't discover the Liberalism in what he calls
tbe Liberal party—though in giving
away our money, to themselves and
other unnecessary persons and objects, they are liberal to the point of
criminal extravagance.
"The one fundamental and vital
need of the country is a great and
rapid growth of population. That
can only be got by the most vigorous, intelligent and persistent immigration campaign. Yet in his mani
festo speech Mackenzie King devotes
oceans of words to transportation
and taxation questions and only a
few perfunctory commonplace^ to
immigration, whicb alone can solve
the other two.
"Of course, We want new plans of
land Settlement and development to
ntalie full me of the millions of immigrants we should be fetching in,
and to keep them and our own native
sons from drifting'out. To plan und
experiment for that object is the first
duty of any live immigration department, but this government seems
bent on keeping the immigration department dead—except on pay day.

Inclusion  of     Mr.  Massey
The inclusion of Mr, Vincent Massey -in the King cabinet may prove
a boomerang to the federal premier.
Mr. Massey is head of the biggest
implement manufacturing plant in
Canada, and when he was taken into
the cabinet by Premier King there
was naturally some bewilderment as
to why a large manufacturer could
agree with the non-proctectivo policy
of Mr. King nnd his Progressive
friends. And just to get the proper
effect Mr. Massey had stated that the
lowering of the tariff on implements
had not injured his firm's business.
There is a reason for most such
unusual incidents. While lowering
the duty on implements, the King
government took special care of Mr.
Massey by lowering the duty on
malleable iron eastings, bolts, rods,
bars, nuts, and other parts used by
the Massey-Harris firm, these parts
usually being bought by large companies from small or subsidiary concerns, in small lots. Along with this
the government took off the sales
tax of 6 per cent ou imported parts.
This adversely affected some two
hundred smalt manufacturing plants,
but Mr. Massey got his parts from
the United States.
Hon. H. H. Stevens gives another*
reason. Germany owed, and still
owes, millions of dollars to Canadians. A commissioner was appointed
to examine all claims before any distribution of fflnds should be mude.
One of the largest claimants was Mr.
Massey. Premier King paid Mr.
Massey a large sum on his claim, a
sum upwards of $500,000. Why pay
Mr. Massey before others?
There appears to be fairly good
reasons for Mr. Massey being specially interested in the King government.—Exchange.
The Minister of Finance at Victoria has taken the opportunity
more than once of late to state that
the government will not abandon its
succession duties. There has been
considerable agitation in some quarters for such a step, although this
form of taxation is very ohl and is
in general force throughout the civilized world. As the minister points
out, if this source of revenue wus

A tragic accident took place at
Kitehencr on Wednesday of last,
week, when a man named Peter Hansen lost his life 'by having his head
cut otf just above the -ears.
The evidence given at the inquest
went to show that the unfortunate
man was employed on the C.P.R.
steam shovel crew, which is at work
a couple of miles west of Kitchener,
widening yiit.the right of way. His
job was to shovel earth out of dump
cars which are adjusted so that the
bottom drops down about two feet in
order to expedite unloading. Hansen
bad shovelled out possibly half of
the car load, and whilst peering up
through the bottom to see what part
of the load remained, the weight of
the wet earth on the opposite side
caused the bottom to spring back to
place, crushing the unfortunate
man's head in its grip.
Thc jury empanelled to enquire
into the fatality was composed of
John McRobb, foreman; -Harry
Spence, Geo. Hendren, John McDonald, N. Devlin and B. Johnson,
and after hearing the evidence of
those who were at work with 'deceased they brought in a verdict of
accidental death.

age and had resided at Kitchener lor

Locally it is plainly to he seen that the cause
of Dr. Rutledge i-. daily gaining strength, and if his
supporters can take some steps to counteract the
campaign of intensive advertising now heing undertaken on behalf Of I Ir. King, then' is little doubt
but that the East Kootenay riding will swing with
thc rest of the country on polling day. It is apparent that Dr. King no longer exercises the degree of personal popularity thai he once commanded. Even at the height of that he never had an
easy victory politically in lhe district, and met defeat in the federal arena in all hul the last straight
fight he engaged iu of the same nature as at
An added difficulty Dr. King has lo inert lies
in the mass of new people who have come into the
district, who do not know him, who have no knowledge of the traditions of the past, and to whom
the election is a matter of one policy against another, devoid of all personalities.
H. II. Stevens, of Vancouver, in a recent
speech here, very tellingly showed up how in counting what has been done for this district during the
past four years, Dr. King found it necessary to
borrow credit from the previous administrations
for some undertakings that had been put on foot
before his time, 'lhe Banff-Windermere roasl was
commenced under the Borden government, and had
not the war intervened, would have heen completed
long before Dr. King ever went to Ottawa. The
development of the governmenl telephone system
for the benefit primarily of the settlers of the Columbia and Windermere districts has been no more
than tbe development of those districts demanded,
and the pity is that there are not at the present time
more people in those districts to lie served by them.
Perhaps had lhc government cmharkcN on a more
energetic immigration policy Dr. King would have
been able to point witli pride to vastly bettered
conditions in that agricultural district; but as it is
iV Rutledge has the advantage in being able to
point to the able [farmers and thoroughly worthy
citizens who have had to leave the district, not able
to make ends meet there, and lhe others who would
lie glad to get out if they could. Does this indicate
particularly prosperous and sound conditions in that
part of the riding? There is no need to be pessimistic about the state of affairs there, because ultimately conditions will right themselves in spite of
everything, but it is in lhe meantime placing a tremendous handicap on that pari of the country.
This was the reason that an extremely cordial welcome was extended to Dr. Rutledge on his
recent tour through thai country,   lie was hailed
as the harbinger of belter conditions, and at every
point there was no qualification to the cordiality
with which he was greeted.   This   i.s   the   district
that was supposed to contribute pretty heavily to
the 'chimerical majority of five hundred which was
accorded Dr. King recently in a fanciful dream of
one of his ardent supporters, bul since then Dr, King
has been enabled to sei' something of lhe temper of
the Fernie electorate on the sland he and his government took ou the Home Hank question, and it
is obvious there is no pan of the riding that Dr.
King ean now say with certainty will register solidly for him, least oi all his home town, where four
years ago, with all his newly found prestige as a
cabinet minister for lhe Dominion, and with the
tacit encouragement, if not llu- active Bltpport, of
some of thc Conservative pany, a comparative
stranger from the ranks of Labor, without any influential backing or adequate preparation for a
campaign, ran a vote to within a hundred of In
It is the same in regard lo lhe aid for mining,
which was quoted hy Dr. King as something for
which he was entitled to credit. While endeavoring
to bolster up a record along this line, for which it
is shown the Conservatives have more right lo claim
the development of. and private enterprise thc in
ception of, Dr. King should nol forget lo mention
that tbe governmenl refused lo go ahead with Ihe
expenditure of a grant actually made for (lie establishment of au ore-testing plant in Nelson, which
it was felt would be of great benefit to the interior
mining districts, and  lhe  small  undertakings  es
pecially.    With his knowledge of mining conditions
in this district, Dr. King should have been on thc
aggressive continually iu ihis direction, instead of
having to be egged on lo get anything accomplished. 1"" any -,*°c'<'" '••
ACCORDING to government estimates of the
man, even, Hon. Arthur Meighen is a powerful
talker. Thc Premier has said that because of his
utterances men all over the country threw up their
joBs, believed the country was going to tlte dogs,
and migrated to the States. Likewise the government force.s have admitted that the Conservative;
had a "walkover" in Victoria and Nanaimo, but this
is now claimed to have been changed by a single utterance which it is alleged Mr. Meighen made that
the principle of the equalization of freight rates,
and the concessions granted to thc west,.were indefensible.
Those wljo know Mr. Meighen and who have
followed his speeches know that above all else he
is consistent, and that his policy is not one of special
treatment for any one part of the country against
another. His policy on the freight rates question
is that it should bc left entirely iu the hands of the
railway commission, thc body that was appointed
by Sir Wilfred Laurier fori the purpose, and that
parliament should not interfere with thc work of
lhat body, except to lay down thebroad principles
upon which it might work. The muddle the freight
rates question has now reached is due to the fact
that political considerations have been allowed to
enter into the question, and thc railway commission's status has been brought into disrepute hy the
public because of thc interference of parliament in
the matter. If the House of Commons or the cabinet is to deal with freight rates question, then the
railway commission might as well be abandoned altogether; its usefulness is ended. But if it is to
be expected to act impartially on thc question, i;
lioulil not be hampered by any considerations that
tend to distract from thc big principles that are involved in thc revision of rates.
Transformation  Planned for
Smith Lake to Attract and
Hold Tourists
Smith Lake, just on the outskirts
nl' Cranbrook, witli a government
ond leading up to it, is a beautiful
little lake with a splendid bathing
beach and park-like surroundings.
If the beach wero sanded, and the
mmedkto frontage, with the old
stumps removed, levelled and put
into lawn grans, and a few shade
trees put in where tlie stumps are
now, aud the old rotted logs removed from the park-like lands, ami
benches provided for tile use'of picnic parties, where would it hu possible to find a better located o'v more
beautiful spot than Smith hake?
This thought came to mo when I
first saw Smith Lake a lew months
ago, aud arrangements were immediately made to purchase the property. 1 realized that there had to be
some source of Income to improve
the place, aud it would he unfair to
the ptiblie to make any charges for
the use of the grounds nr bench and
so a dance pavilion waa built, where
a charge could be made for entertainments and the profits to go towards improving the grounds and
beach. So far the pavilion has not
brought any returns. It hasn't as
much as paid for the music that hus
been hired fo/these entertainments.
Is it lack of proper management, or
is it lack of support?

The consideration of thc freight rates question tinder the pressure brought on -the goyerhmettt
hy thc coast Liberals has ly-nl the deplorable effect
f pitting thc east against the west. There I
Iieen only so many millions of bushels of grain lu
handle, and the quantity that comes west presumably means that much less passing through the cast
em ports with facilities ready to handle it. Is i!
reasonable to expect thai the eastern interests, being human, are docilely going to allow their grain
trade to be diverted to lhc west without protest.'
Would it not have been wiser to approach such a
big question- with more delicacy and tact, instead
of using verbal bludgeons? •
The solution of thc freight rates question
will come when there is more grain to haul. The
vacant spaces on the prairies must be filled up, anil
the money that has been spent by this province in
campaigning for lower freight rates, while il is considered to have achieved some result, would have
been better spent in attrac'ting-the right kind oi
settlers to the prairies to cultivate more laud, and
to make it possible for those already on the land
to produce at a profit so Ihere would he more freight
to haul.
Equalization of freight rates is Ino big a
question to he merely a plank in a Liberal platform.
The east and the west are divided on it already, and
lhe cleavage will become worse instead of -heller
if the question is not lifted out of the realm of party politics and treated as a national question in "
statesmanlike way.

able to find a safe seat to open for a by-election in
B.C., the location of the scat being of secondary
consideration. If it had been considered wise to
open a seat anywhere else, or if there had not been
a solid block of Conservatives elected at the coast,
it is reasonable to expect tliat B.C's. cabinet minister
would have been placed in some other riding. The

Pleads  for  Re-Consecration
of Sabbath Against Tendency to Make Holiday
Sunday evening la-tit a largo number were out to hear thc Rev. Dr.
Huestis, western secretary of the
Lord's Day Alliance, who spoke at
the United Church on the subject of
Sabbath observance. Many of those
who had the pleasure nf hearing this
speaker were Impressed with the
candid manner in which he dealt
with his subject. His manner was
non-controversial, his method being
to stute what to his mind were ffacts
and leaving it to one's self to moke
their own determination as to the
right or wrong way of observing the
Sabbath, which was possibly much
more effective.
In opening his remarks the speaker
pointed out that there was never a
time in the history 0C the work of
the Lord's Duy Alliance when there
was a greater need for sympathetic
help. To him it was not a question
of a legal battle to preserve the day.
He pointed out that so far us the
hours of work act applied to Sunday, this was being satisfactorily
carried out; what they had to fear
v?aa the individual attack. The
heart of the Lord's Day was being
assailed. There seemed to bc an
ever-increasing desire to turn the
day into a holiday. To counteract
this he would not suggest the use of
any old or new law hut with the
exercise of the Christian conscience.
After pointing out that by the
first book of the Bible the Sabbath
waa made co-equal with thc man,
"The Sabbath was made for man,
and rtot man for the Sabbath," the
speaker gave the opinion of many
men of note in respect to the Lord's
day.. Leckie claimed that England
had; benefited by Sunday, and Ralph
Waldo Emerson hnd declared that
the Sabbath was the core of civilization,
' At the present time there was an
actual question as to whether civilization was due to decay, passing
away into a shadow. No civilization
could live without religion. Wells
in his "Outline of History," pointed
out the great lesson that "Righteous-
Beta exalteth a nation," and that
sflme had disintegrated when they
had lost hold on God. Lord Beacons-
field said that the Sabbath was the
keystone of civilization. Tbe speaker claimed that the Lord's Day Alliance was not out to have people
legislated into doing thus and thus
on Sunday. There was already too
much of ^hls regimentation of human conduct. Kncli should let their
conscience decide how they were to
use thc dny. It was not a problem
for the police, but for thc fathers
and mothers to save the day.
Ramsay MacDonald had said that
he was amazed to find some of his
friends who said that they full that
the old Scottish laws were a burden,
it being from this Sabbath that the
fine, solid foundation of character
had been made.
The speaker felt that never at any
other time were the boys and girls
more open for leadership. 1914
showed the latent idealism that i slated. He asked nre we setting the a
good copies? In regard, to Sunday
golf the speaker referred to the
decision of many prominent men,
who, while they felt that they might
indulge in a game of golf without
any harm, the effect on the children
had to be considered.
Dr. Huestis also spoke in the Baptist Church on Sunday morning nnd
visited Kimberley during his stay in
the district.

and Mrs. Lindsay Conroy, Lumber-
ton, a son.
On Monday, about noon, an accident occurred at the Central school
grounds near the manual training
school, when Mike Frost, about
twelve years old, was playing football with a number of other boys,
and in running after a ball kicked
out into the road ran in front of
a car driven by Stanley Kemball.
He was taken to the hospital, where
it was found he hud received a bad
cut on his leg at the knee, but
had luckily escaped any serious injury. *No blame was attached to thu
driver of the car by those who witnessed the accident, the boy in his
anxiety to chase the football not
noticing the approaching car, which
had no chance to stop to avoid an
accident. Incidentally this ocurrence
points to the need for more room
round the school for playground purposes, and fences rofttd what ground
there is.
G. H. Davis, of Kimberley, is a
patient at the hospital at the present
Julius Gallard of Kitchener, who is
sixty-nine years of age, had a narrow escape from death this week,

and is now doing well.

Dr. Bancroft, of Montreal, noted
geologist, arrived in Kimberley last
week, where he will remain for some
time on professional business.
On Tuesday one of the large plate
glass windows of the Fink Mercantile Co. was broken by a stone, about three inches long and one and
one-half inches through, which was
hurled at it by Mr. Bert Jones. Bert
did not have any grudge against thc
Fiuk Mercantile Co. nt all, and could
not repeat the stunt again if he tried,
the way it happened being that while
he was passing up Baker Street, and
on tbe opposite side of the street, one
of his car wheels struck the rock,
shooting it across the street and
through thc window, nearly striking
Mr. Stewart, who was passing at the

on Thursday evening, after an absence of several weeks, and he is
now much improved in health.
Jas, Slmms of Athalmer, well known
C.P.R. man and the likely candidate
spoken of in the Labor interests, if
a candidate were to be put up for
the forthcoming elections, was in
town on Wednesday for a time, but
so far as could bc learned it is not
likely he will be found in the lists
this time, organized labor in the riding bcing far from unanimous on the
question of the advisability of putting up a candidate at this time.
J. Renfrew, of Victoria, was in
the city last week-end, visiting Durham Kncampmcnt in his official capacity as Grand Patriarch for B.C.

Dr. Rutledge Well Received
in Columbia;  Other
Meetings Soon
Polling in the Dominion elections
is now only three weeks away, and
nominations take place on Thursday,
October 22nd. There has not been
much outward activity apparent on
either side in the city during the past
week or so, but efforts have been
made to concentrate on the compilation of th* voters list. This has now
been completed and the court of revision commences today, Thursday,
when the list, as compiled-1>y A. B.
Smith, the registrar, will be reviewed nnd personal applications for additions to the list will be heard. The
list as it at present stands totals almost two ' thousund names, a considerable increase from the'time of
the last election, when there were
only some fifteen hundred names.
Both candidates have heen out of
the city during the past week, Dr.
Rutledge returning on Wednesday
evening from a very successful trip
to the Windermere and Columbia
districts, while Dr. King has been at
Vancouver in company with the
Prime Minister, and will not be returning to Cranbrook until Monday
Golden has been the fortunate
point in the East Kootenay riding,
that is to have the opportunity of
hearing both Premier Mackenzie
King and thc Honorable Arthur
Meighen, who both spoke from the
rear platform of their special cars
there. It is expected that meetings
will shortly be held in this city by
both parties, as soon as arrangements
for speakers "are completed. In the
meantime, meetings are being held
at the outside points, and among the,
meetings in this district during the
week was a gathering at Wardner
on Tuesday evening, in the Liberal
interests, addressed by Mr. G. J.
Spreull and Mrs. Evah McKowan,
of this city, and A. I. Fisher, K.C,
of Fernie. Sentiment in this city
and throughout the district is unmistakably turning to Dr. Rutledge
and the Conservative party, this state
of affairs being attributed to the
persistent and earnest work of the
candidate and his enthusiastic workers and also the speeches of H, H.
Stevens in this riding, revealing how
little it could really be said that Dr.
King has accomplished for the district. •
Col. Nelson Spencer, formerly federal member for Medicine Hat and
a returned soldier, will be coming

expected that from now on the well-
equipped Trail plant will be kept busy
by the Canadian Copper company
with their shipments.
From 25 to 40 tons will bo produced daily,*and should the shipments from Copper mountain warrant it, any additional quantity ean

I   Where Beer Drinkers   J
Get Off |
Dr. Harvey G. Wiley, formerly
Chief of the U.S. Bureau of Chemistry, Washington, D.C., and Advisor
to the Canadian Pacific Railway during the war, is authority for the
following statement:
Moderate beer or wine drinking
does no harm" is a common expression. Life insurance records tell a
different story. No really hard
drinker or drunkard is accepted for
life insurance; he is too great a risk.
But though a moderate beep drinker
be accepted, he is regarded as a possible hazard. Some live to old age;
but the average beer or wine drinker
dies earlier than the average insured
man, and this causes financial loss
to the companies.
One company,  Northern    Mutual
Life Insurance Company, whose general experience with abstainers and
with   (trinkets   is   typiVal,   recorded
the drinker^ in detail.    Here is the
mortality story of four groups.   The
figures show how mnny deaths occurred  of   100   deaths   expected   in
each group in a given period:
Years Over
Old      40
or    Years
less    old
Total abstainers   34      37
Moderate drinkers—did
not drink daily or regularly, never more than !i
glasses of beer in a day,
or 4 of light wine, or 2
of spirits   (ifi       82
Regular beer drinkers—
drank daily 1 to 4 glasses of beer, 5 or more
days in a week. Group
also   included   moderate
wine drinkers 71       08
Regular spirit drinkers
—used more than the
proceeding, never more
than .'! glasses of spirits
in a day   88      111
Records of 2,000,000 policy holders in 43 American insurance companies show similar results for moderate and free-drinkers.
Young people usually begin to
drink with beer ond wine. Should
they be encouraged to believe beer
and wine harmless when the young
beer-drinkof who wants to protect
his family will find insurance companies Increasingly disposed to regard his beer habit a hazardous
hne? The conclusion of one medical director Is this:
There ftppetil'8 to be no limit with-
whieh alcohol may be entirely
harmless—anyone who uses alcohol
now or has used it in the past is a
less desirable risk, all others being
equal, than the total abstainer, and
his undesirability is in proportion to
the freedom with which he has used
the drug.' "

Very Easy to Make Lauadr-jr
Or Toilet Soap by These
In the old pioneer days the thrifty
housewives used to make thair own
soap ns a regular part of their housfe-
hold duties. It used to be quite a
laborious undertaking, because -they.
first had to make a lye*'from -wood
ashes. But nowadays it's 'different.
Hundreds of Canadian hoUsawMes
are still making their own soap, but
they are not bothering with -wood
ashes. They get their lye for a -iew
cenls at the grocery store, and ithe
rest is easy.
The manufacturers of Gillett's
Flake Lye have prepared a -little1
1 klet which gives complete directions for home soap-making, -using
such things :m tallow, bacon rind,
bones, etc., thut too often
thrown into the garbuge ean.. The
beauty of it is thnt thore is no labor
about thc business, and, if directions are followed, success is as certain as sunrise. This seems -like a
good way to save money, to say-nothing of creating that satisfied feeling which always results from the
contemplation of a really good and.
useful article which you have made
yourself. Readers would certainly
be well advised to write E. W. Gillett

Is this statement attributed to
Judge Wilbur, Secretary tf tbe
"In view of the experience of the
navy planes in the Arctic expedition, the failure of the Hawaiian
flight and tho Shenandoah disaster, we huve come to the conclusion that the Atlantic and the
Pud tic arc still our best defenses.
"We have nothing to fear from

The experience in the Arctic,
tlie failure of the Hawaiian flight,
the dreadful Shenandoah disaster
had nothing to do with capable
air navigation, but a great deal to
do with incompetent management
of our air force.
We should have, indeed, nothing
to fear from foreigd aircraft If we
could give to foreigners such
management as our aircraft lias.
Mr. Wilbur's statement that our
oceans arc our best defense sounds
like the statement of some ostrich
saying, "I have nothing to fear,
the sand is my best defense. I
can stick my head into it."
It is suggested that railroads be
forced to combine in great transportation units, and that they
make their own selections "rather
than have the Government do the
choosing for them."
Why not have a selection of
well-informed men, railroad men of
course, acquainted.with traffic conditions, moke a survey of railroads, and let the- Government
know which combination should
be made in the interest of economy and of efficiency?
President Coolidge will certainly
not think it wise to leave these
combinations to selfish interests
based on opportunities for stock
jobbing, combining broken down
roads with good roads for the
sake of immediate profit, rather
than more efficiency. Perhaps
for the sake of unloading unprofitable railroads on tbe stockholders

This new circle tour is now in -existence and in constant use by motorists, with the exception of the gap of
about 150 miles between Jasper, Alberta, nnd Barkerville, B.C. Of this
gap the Dominion Government wtll
have to construct about fifty miles,
between Jasper and the western'

then passes south between the Rockies and the Selkirks to Cranbrook,
and thence to Nelson, with a boat'

all the "breaks," and on the next, everything will go wrong. U ina game of such
infinite variety that no pla\er can ever
hope to master all its quirks and turns.
Even the best of players lose their judgment at times and allow their own hand
to influence their bidding to their disadvantage when they should realize
that their partner has an unusual or
freak hand. The other night, the writer
noticed two examples of this failure to
be on the lookout for the unusual or
freak type of hand.
The dealer with the following hand:
Hearts—A, 7
Clubi — A, 9,4, 2
Diamonds— A, 0, J, t
Spades — A, K, 4
bid one no trump. Second hand passed
and the dealer's partner bid two nearts.
Fourth hand passed and the dealer bid
two no-trump. When his partner bid
three hearts, the dealer failed to realize
that if his partner had a justifiable tiuee
heart bid, they had a sure game iu
hearts, and bid three no-trumpalthougli
there was no sure gume in no-trump
The 100 acca were too much for his
judgment and is a result he went dow n

Diamonds —A, Q, 10, 9,6
t .Spadea —A, Q,I0,4,2
Ills partner dealt and passed, second
hand passed and he bid one spade.
When tit* partner overbid with two
clubs, he correctly bid two diamonds.
His partner bid three clubs and he bid
three diamonds. This bid is doubtful
but when his partner bid four clubs, he
should certainly have passed. He never
stopped to realize that such bidding by
hia partner indicated a most unusual
baud, one of t he-freak type and that his
high cards in three suits would be of
great help to his partner and that his
partner's clubs would be of little value
to his own hand, if he should obtain the
bid at diamonds or spades. In spite of
all these cogent teanons, however, he
bid four diamonds and all passed. His
partner's hand, was as follows:
Hearts— 8
Clubs—A, 0,1,10,9,7,5,4,3
Diamonds —8, 7
At clubs, they could have made five
odd, losing only out cnib -wid one diamond ti irk; while »r diamonds they
went d'.-wn two tricks, tl is a fine example of what not to do with a bis
hand. Play for the fame, first, last and

Their long day of fast, and the
marrow-weakening chill of the night
wind and the ruin, made food a desperate need of these poor wayfarers.
It was a most unkind Old Witch,
therefore, that with seeming maliciousness waited until the very moment when they were about to he-
gin eating to drop a fragment of
rock into the centre of their fire,
knocking over the stew can. Un-
niinded hy the men in the eagerness
of their appetites, a thin flow of debris, presaging a slide, had begun—
even before the tragedy of the stew
can—toward the base of the trestle
pier, in the bottom of the funnel
like declivity for under the tracks.
A boulder shot down through the
darkness—then another—and another.
With a wail of agonized disap-
apointment Potts reached to save
what might be left of the stew in
the overturned can, but a bouncing
stone sent cun and fire careening

over the cliff. The scattered embers streaked into thc black abyss
like a brief scurry of frightened me-
torites—then darkness, thick ann
dangerous, closed arounn the imperilled hoboes.
"Climb for the tracks, but keep
under the trestle!" shouted Potts,
feeling his way around the concrete
pier and scrambling upwards. Spike
and Bob fought hastily up beside
him. lt was touch and go, with
bone-crushing death whizzing past
their heads on wings of stone. Miraculously, they were able to escape
from the bottom of the funnel to the
wider and comparatively safer space
high up, just beneath the tracks,
without being hit.
Below them went on the curdling
ronr and chaos of the landslide.

wild tangents, cumo uncomfortably
Potts' strength gave out as he
nenred the tracks, and he suddenly
started to slide back toward the
grinding disaster below. Bob, barely feeling the brush of Potts' body
as he coasted by, braced himself and
grabbed his friend; then with difficulty dragged him to the safety of
the tracks, which Spike had already

grotesque and restless human birds
