The annual mooting nf the Cranbrooit Board of Trude convened In
the council chamber nt HAft p.m. on
Monday, the 06th inst., with twenty
present, president W. IL Wilson occupying the chair. Secretary C, J.
Lewis rend the minules of the lasl
regular meeting and it" wns moved
that the minutes be adopted.
Tho secretury reported that all
business referred to in the minutes
had been attended to. Satisfactory
arrangements bad been made in tho
rental of offices on Armstrong Avenue, und nothing further hnd been
done in the mutter of providing permanent quarters for the board.
Chairman W. H. Wilson read his
animal report, which is published
elsewhere, nnd tbis was greeted with
hearty applause.
In moving that a vote of thanks be
tendered Mr. Wilson, Mr. G, J.
Spreull referred to the efficient manner in which he had filled thc office
of chairman, and particularly to the
enthusiasm with which he looked after the work, making it a pleasure
Tor the other members of the board
to co-operate. Coupled with thanks
to the chairman, the motion paid tribute to the work done by the chairman of the finance committee, M. A.
Beale, as well as to the energetic
secretary, C. J. Lewis. J. P. Fink, in
seconding tbe motion expressed his
appreciation of the enthusiasm of the
chairman, which he claimed could
not help but be contagious. He spoke
also of the amount of work that had
been accomplished.
In reply to the vote which had
been enthusiastically carried, Mr.
Wilson stated that he was pleased if
his services had been of any value.
He felt that the public did not really
know tbe amount of work that the
board had to do. He was glad to say
that the hour of meeting of the executive from 11 to 12 twice a month
had proved very satisfactory.
M. A. Beule read the finance committee's report, which showed that
where is at the beginning nf th* year
a balance of $13.64 was noted, at the
close they had a credit balance of
$121.61. *
Chas. Little moved, and W. R.
Grubbe seconded, the adoption of the
Tho election of officers then took
place. After declaring all offices
vacant Mr. Wilson was appointed
temporary chairman.
G. J. Spreull moved that Mr. Wilson be re-elected president. Failing
to get any listening ears to bis plea
that someone other than himself be
appointed, nominal ions closed aud he
wns re-elected.
J. F. Scott, tn placing the name of
W. R. Grubbe in nomination for the
vice-presidency, claimed that there
was no better supporter of the board
than Mr. Grubbe. He hnd done most
efficient work as vii o-presideiit. Mr.
Grubbe felt tha! his three years uf
service to the board should be sufficient reason for his release this year,
but as in the case of tbe president,
the members apparently felt thnt he
Was too valuable a man to lose, and
he was accordingly elected by acclamation.
For the positions on the executive tin-re were fifteen names placed
in nomination, the following being
elected. Iwo ballots being necessary
ns there were no less than four tied
for the eighth place:
M. A. Beule, J, P. Fink, T, Flett,
F. Guimont. II. W. Herchmer, C. J.
Little, J. F, Scott, 0, J. Spreull.
Following the elections, tbe mutter
oi publicity occupied the attention
of the  meeting for some time.    Th
question as to tho best method of
advertising the district to the tourist wus considered. Chairman Wil
son  wus  of  the  opinion  tbat   I'inn
brook should remain in association
with the other towns in the district
and not take advantage of its p.
tion, us hud been staled wns being
done in not going in with the other
towns. Tribute was paid to J. F.
Spalding in looking after the interests of this end of the Kootenays, as
well as others in the association, but
with the change of commissioner, he
now being located in Alberta, the
members felt thnt Cranbrook would
havo to see tbat they got proper representation.
A motion by J. F. Scott was carried, tbat the secretary write secretary C. P. Brown, asking whnt proposed maps and publications were
available through the Red Trail Association for thc season of 1925,
whnt benefits would accrue to Cranbrook us a member of the association
also what towns were in the association.
It might be mentioned thnt the

New Teacher
Offers   City   Tourist   Park
Site   on   Two Year
The first meeting of the new
Bchool board was held iu the council
■hai ■ '-r '.n Friday night, all the
boitrd being present except Trustee
Gilroy, who was out of town. Chuir-
man Dezall was re-el. i ted to lhat position and in a shorl address expressed his appreciation of the honor conferred upon him again. lie was
grateful for tbe co-operation uf the |
board during 11)21 and hoped for a
continuance of it during the coming
year. He considered that 1024 had
been un outstanding year so far us
school affairs were concerned iu the
city. The school facilities had been
greatly increased, and the efficiency
of the teachers, as judged by the results of the departmental examinations, had never been better.
Tbo result of tbe poll as published,
was rend und tbe elected members
expressed pleasure ut being again on
the board and Signified their intention of doing nil they could in the
best interests of the city.
In regard to the matter of tho
tourist park grounds, the question
arose as to thc advisability of disposing of the property to the city. After
considerable discussion it was decided to grant the cily a two year lease
on the property. It was felt that at
the present rate it would not be long
before Crunbrook would have lo provide extra accommodation, in which
case it would be well to hnve another
location for n school.
The trustees discussed the question
The management of the Arena

events when on Tuesday evening last
they staged what was known as
"Open Night." The large crowd that
attended were well satisfied, and

good combination.
The second game wus .the fracas

The problem >• lo find the mm total of the figure* in the two dre'et, which, when
added together, represent the total number of miles that Canada'* most powerful
broadcasting station can be heard. Every figure is complete and the drawing is entirely free from tricks and illusions, but like a lot of other things, it is not as easy as
it 'ooks. Figures range from two to nine, each standing alone thus, two, three, four
five, six, seven, eight, and nine. There are no ones or cyphers in the chart. The
tops of the sixes arc curved, while the bottom* of the nines are straight. By looking
at any figure carefully you can easily tell what it is. However, to pick out all the
figures and add them together correctly is a task that requi-es both patience and
skill. This is one of tbe most attractive figure puzzles that has ever been produced,
and it would be worth while to solve, even though no prizes were offered, in the
event that no one obtains the exact answer, the prize* will be awarded for the nearest
correct solution. Accuracy and patience are the main factor* for arriving at the cor.
rect or nearest count. Those who display these qualification* to the best advantage
will solve the puzzle best.

"So One Knows Correct Answer
To make sure that no one knew thc exact or correct answer to the problem, or

president und managing director of the Alberta Pacific Grain Company, Limited,
kindly consented to erase one or more figures from the puzzle chart. This was done
at different times, consequently no one knows'just what numbers were taken out.
Notes of these figures were made by Mr. Davidson, Mr. McFarland and Mr. Wood,
scaled und placed in a safety deposit box, where they will remain until after the close
of the contest.
Bear in mind that the correct answer wat known before the judge* erased torn*
of the figures. After the contest is over, the judges will inform the Contest Department just what number* they erased. These number* will be subtracted from tha

I The Satisfaction that good work gives |

would surely be better In have all the other town
mi tlu- route pulling witli Cranbrook, than for this
lily tn attempt such a task by itself. Some supplementary advertising might well be done alunjj this
line by thc city, if it were deemed advisable, but a
chorus is usually more effective than a solo, so far
as noise is concerned, though when the attention
of the audience has been gained by the chorus, a solo
usually goes well.
It would seem that Cranbrook has everything
to gain, antl little to sacrifice, by working in unison
with other points in attracting the tourists.

Nevertheless, the ratepayers
generally an in sympathy with the movement now
on foot in the city council lo cut down thc tax rate.
Last year'-: council made a commendable move in
this direction and if the good work is continued,
there is sonic hope that a further reduction can be
made. To get down to forty nulls, however, sounds
almost too good to be true. Tin- school levy, now
already down to rock bottom, and the debenture
charges, which cannot bc reduced, alone will total
close to forty mills. This would Lave mighty little
margin .r'tr essential city work that must bc carried
on, ai.d which il is necessary must be done. Nevertheless, it will he an achievement to chop off another
mi'! oi" two.
Just how difficult retrenchment is the Dominion
government is experiencing just now. To a Cranbrook audience lion. MacKenzie King, premier, said
there would be a balanced budget for the country,
but now the way is being prepared to break tbe news
that there will be a deficit of many millions, owing
to unexpected drops in revenue.
THE question of how best to keep this corner of
the East Kootenay before the travelling public
of America, who can afford to make the trip here Inroad to see it, is one that is going to come up for
consideration by the' local Hoard of Trade sooner
or later, and there will be a sharp division of opinion probably on whether Cranbrook should again tie
up with the other towns in tbe district, with the
other places along the red or blue trails, or plow a
lone furrow by putting out ils own advertising matter.
It helps in arriving at any logical conclusion on
this question to consider just what it is brings the
auto tourists into the district. If it is the attractions of the district as a whole, rather than
those of any one particular point, then it is alto
getber likely that the tourists will be attracted to
the East Kootenay, not by the claims of any om
particular town over another, but by tbe concerted
efforts to keep the district as such to tbe fore.
Tbe blue circle tour, with Cranbrook on the
southwest comer, will always remain an irresistible
lure to the motor tourist, and one ou which the edge
is not worn off at first acquaintance. Moreover,
there are developments taking place at various
points on the trail or closely adjacent to it that
should bc considered. Band, and the national park
there have hitherto been thought of as tbe premier
attractions thc blue trail has to offer, but it is worth
n* 'ing that last year eighteen thousand tourists visited Waterton Lake park, the natural beauties of
Which are of an exceedingly high order, and attracting more and more attention. Considerable development along much the same lines as at Hand have
been done, and i being carried further each year,
and coupled witli this i a movement now on foot
to complete ih ■ road outh, to give easy access from
United Stat;-s points to Waterton. The tourists
will stream u; this road just as they now do at present up and down tin- Banff-Windermere road.
Where will they go? They can be induced to pass
this way, eilhcr by way of thc Crow's Nest Pass, or
tound tiie circle, iu either case going back via Cran-
GREAT men have brainstorms like the rest of humanity, and though they may have made monumental successes in one particular line of endeavor,
some of them have shown just as colossal errors of
judgment in other directions. But the public is very
forgetful and lenient with its idols, and so their failures are lost sight of in the enthusiasm for their
successes. This is brought to mind very forcibly by
a chance perusal of a copy of tlie Literary Digest,
dated in 1916, before the United States had entered
the war, but at the time when the German U-boat
atrocities were stirring the optllacc. Henry Ford,
having solved the problem of the cheap automobile
for the nation and the world, sought to settle the
war problem in the same way. He bought space profusely for the dissemination of his pcace-at-any-
price doctrine, and preached it religiously and earnestly.
Here are some Fordlets from his propaganda
message of that time, published under the somewhat
specious heading of "Humanity—and Sanity."
"Thc greatest battle fleet in the world's history,
backed up a magnificent army in that landing (at the
Dardanelles). Thoy faced no such great guns as our
coast forts have. Yet for a yeur this army and navy
struggled and the soldiers never got beyond range of the
naval guns. Then the attempt was abandoned. The jingoes refuse to remember such a recent shuttering of their
fictions, and try to make you forget it too"
"They refuse to remember thnt Englund during the
present war, with absolute control of the sen, required
li.'i days to move .'10,000 troops, unequipped, from one
friendly port, Quebec, to another friendly port, Southampton. Yet they tell you glibly of 400.000 enemies landing on our shores overnight."
"Americans . . , must keep out of the wur, for we
huve no right in it no matter whnt the Wull Street tories
und "putriots" tell us through their newspaper spokesmen."
But in spite of it all the United States went to
war, and helped to win, and Henry Ford, having let
his attention revert to the manufacture of popular-
priced automobiles, is once again an idol of the populace, showing infinitely better judgment in business
than he did in politics.
OW that the legal proceedings are over in connection with thc acquirement by tlie Dominion
government of Sinclair Springs properly, and
its inclusion in thc confines of the Kootenay natio
nal park is settled, it is within the bounds of possibi
lity that in a few years the government may be
induced to develop the place somewhat. It is too
much to hope that a second Baud may spring ti]
there, but at least the place could be improved something along the lines as private enterprise has done
a short distance away at Fairmont. Development of
these natural resources means a good deal to the
East Kootenay, and would be thc means of attracting much favorable attention to thc place, besides
giving the district something additional to capitalize
on in its advertising.

The eight hour law has gone into effect with the
New Year. It has been found necessary to make exemptions such as that for all who follow fishing but, in the
lumber business and nil connected with work in the forests, the eight hour day rules.
Apparently the change is not welcomed by the workers engaged in the reconstruction of the great mill at
Chemainus. It is not unlikely that mill workers ns other
plants open up will regret the new measure.
Two shifts will be more generally employed in lumber mills and opportunities for earning additional money
will he considerably curtailed. Again, it seems thut no
distinction in the matter of wages will be mnde ns between the different shifts.
In a new country, such as this, while the eight hour
day for everybody is to be desired, the counsel of prudence would be to apply the curtailment in such a manner
that tho best interests of employer and employee would
he safeguarded.
True, a species of determining body is operating under thc act nnd it may be thnt this bonrd will eventunlly

in connection with the annual meeting of the Board of Trade on Monday evening, the following reports
of the agricultural and lumber activities of the district have been prepared, covering the past year.
An agricultural census of the district prepared by Mr. A. L. Hay, district agriculturist, has produced
some startling figures. Although
the district is modest in its claims
for recognition in an agricultural or
stock raising sense, yet it must be
admitted thnt it is coming into its
own as a stock ruising and agricultural area of some importance.
Here is Mr. Hay's report on live
stock, field crops, etc.

Fernie turned out and supported a
ladies' hockey team and thus got u
good one. Cranbrook has a number
of lady plnyers from whom a verj
goud team might be selected. It is
up to Crunbrook to turn out and
back them up, and not give rise once
again for the comment often heard,
that "Crnnbrook is dead when it comes to sport — they want the win
ning teams, but will not support
them." Good sports will stay with a
tenm whether they win or lose, so
long as they nre doing their best.
The Fernie Girls, the cruck Swastikas, are pluying here on Saturday
night, and a good game is assured.
In passing on to the report on the
lumber industry, it may be in order
to state that while exploitation of
forest resources has, with other basic industries, suffered appreciably
from the Into world-wide trnde depression, the statement of the district forester for last yenr is not one
to give rise to despondency on the
purt of either the lumber operators
or the business people who have
thrown in their lot with them. During the pnst twelve months 20 sawmills of the 39 estnblished in the
Crnnbrook forest district have been
working more or less steadily to pro-
1,850,000 f.b.m. uf snwn lumber per

mills at present idle would, hnd they
been working, have mnterinlly increased the aggregate of output,
their collective capacity ruting being

shift. The following figures ure tuken from the district forester's report on forest operations of thc past

Vancouver.—Concluding expropriation proceedings i:i the exchequer
court of Canada. Mr. .Justice McLean
has awarded Roland Stuart, a resident of the south of France $24,200
compensation for Sinclair Springs
and surrounding acreage on the
Banff-Wlndermere road in the Kootenays.
The springs, known as Radium Hot
Springs, because an analysis reveal-1
ed radium in the waters, were di
covered by a prospector thirty years}
ago, although the Indians from time!
Immemorial had used the mineral j
waters on account of their medicinal
Mr Stuart acquired the site and
at one time planned to erect a large
hotel and develop the place along the
lines of Banff.
Following the acquisition of other
property in the district, the Dominion
parks branch of the department of
the interior instituted expropriation
proceedings for the taking over of
Mr. Stuart's holdings. The government offered $22,000, nnd actually
paid this sum to Mr. Stuart several
years ago. but he claimed $500,000,
Evidence was heard here Inst full

Friday evening last thero passed
away at the St. Eugene Hospital,
Mrs. E. Carbonneau, after an illness
dating back over one year. About
eleven months ago .Mrs. Carbonneau
consulted the local doctors and was
advised to go to Rochester, Minn,
There she was treated for cancer,
and came back much improved. A
second trip was taken later in tbe
yoar, when she again received bene-
ficinl treatment. A week ago, how-
over, she became ill and was taken
to the hospital, succumbing last Friday.
She leaves to mourn her loss, be
side her husband, Evangelia Carbonneau, a daughter, Mrs. A. LaPointe,
of Kimberley, a son, Joseph, also of
Kimberley, nnd another daughter in
the east. The late Mrs. Carbonneau,
though a comparative stranger in
Cranbrook* had by her pleasing disposition won her way into the hearts
of many friends in tins city. The
sympathy of many goes out the the
husband und children in their hour
of bereavement. The funeral took
place in Cranbrook, Rev. Father
Murphy officiating.
Mr. H. B. Trevithick of this city
received the sad intelligence this
week of the death of his sister, at
Sheffield, Englnmi. Miss Trevithick
when visiting Cranbrook last year
made a number of friends who will
regret to learn of her passing.

of thc game Or. Huffman was around
next morning signing on some of the
players for au all star Crnnbrook
team to tour the continent.
As intimated, the game was full
of surprises, ,the biggest one to the
Gyros being the wonderful game
(he Rotarians put up. From the dope
standpoint there wns nothing to it
but thai the wheel within a wheel
organization would beat the stngl<
wheelers. However, they did not
coiinl on the stubborn defence the
Rotarians could put up, or the effective work of tlie forwards.
The gnme started away with e
bang and a charge by thc Itotarians
on tlie Gyro goal, and the boys in the
nightshirts began to see their dreams
of victory slowly fade away. Down
the Rotnrinns came, all in a row
and Wilson took a shot on gout, but
was a Utile off, and play wns taken
to the other end. Barber got hold
of tho disk and, with a nice shot,
found an inch of space between the
posts that, wis not occupied by one,
Attridge, upon whom the Rotarians
were betting 1000 to 1. The Rotarians went at thc game with renewed
vigor, and Wilson, McPhee and Clark
kept hammering away at Ross Pas-
cuzuo, but ns he wns padded with
throe or four balloon tires, brought
nlong from the garage, they failed
to make any impression, though one
by McKowan almost had him beaten.
Referee Bamford at this stage ordered off tho ice two players who as
next door neighbors in business had
got on pc.'icnMy for years, Clark of
the Y.M.C.A. and McLean of the C.
P.R. telegraph office. They came
together on the side line and as both
their sticks went in the air, this was
sufficient reason for their banishment. The first period ended 1-0
for the Gyros.
The second period wus hardly
started when Barber again demonstrated that he was no aovice at the
game, by making a nice lift for the
second goal. During this period
there was some good work done by
both sides. A little later Barber
added another, making it 3-0.
At the beginning of the third period Gyro Barber scored another on
a pass from Leigh. Bert Sang then

"Hockey  Night" at Arena Risk
G. T. Moir. secretary of the Amateur Athletic Association, announces
that in about two weeks time a hockey night will be put on at the rink,
when hockey will be the order of the
evening from 7 to-11. Games will
le played by boys and girls ranging
; from the smallest juniors to the in-
i tc-rmediate team. In this way the
, public will get a good idea of w-hat
training bmi practice the children
are getting. Too much stress cannot be put on the importance of getting out and supporting the junior
teams, particularly from the calibre
of the hockey played by the juniors
at Kimberley, and hy the high school
and the V. M. C. A. thin week. Cranbrook will soon havo a junior team of
which the place can be proud.

Thc final score waa 4-0.
Saturday night the wrestling and
boxing tournament which was held
at the K.P. Hall was a success so far
as affairs of this go in Cranbrook.
Everybody got their money's worth
and it is expected that the bout will
be the forerunner of other events of
its kind.
There were about two hundred ir.
attendance, principally from Cranbrook, the roads being in such poor
condition that few would venture in1
from outside points.
The  preliminary  events  were  all
interesting and some clever boxing i
and wrestling was shown by the amateurs.
The first go was between the mosquito weights, young Bobby White
and Sandy McGregor being the occupants of the corner chairs. Bobby
is now well known to the public, and
though still in his early teens, knows
a lot about the art of boxing. Watch
J Bobby in the *f uture, he will make a
good one. This round was a good
one and was declared a draw.
The next battle was also a good
one, Messrs. Lewis and Pascuzzo
coming in for the rubbing between
the nets. This kept the fans on their
toes, Lewis seeming to huve the edge
on Pascuzzo. The event was declared a draw.
Thc other boxing event was that
between Ted Jones, of Nelson, and
Jas. McMahon, of Kimberley, Joyce
of Kimberley being unable to be
there. This event was a four round
affair, and while it was declared a
draw, McMahon, with his greater
weight seemed to have the best of it.
The wrestling preliminary was between Verne Woodman   and   Lome

WINTEK in Canada is synonymous with winter sports.
With the advent of ice and snow
these sports begin; skis, sleds, toboggans, skates, snowshocs and
hockey sticks, together with warm,
gay sport costumes, make their appearance. A psychological change
takes place in the social atmosphere,
merriment radiates its contagion,
' rlskness characterizes al] outdoor
For many years Quebec and Montreal have been Mecca for a large
.umber of winter sport lovers, who
flock to these two cities on the St.
Lawrence during carnival seasons.
There are, however, many other Canadian points where organized sport
is a winter feature. St. John has its
skating tournament in which many
professionals participate. Sher-
brooke, Quebec, has planned an elaborate skiing contest and is providing some splendid trophfen as
Grey Rocks Inn, an all-the-year-
round resort in the Laurent ian
Mountains,  85  miles  northwest of
Montreal, offers aeroplane-ski-joring in addition to irony other winter sports. Winnipeg will set aside
the week of February 4-11, for ear-
nival festivities which are projected
on a vast scale, in addition the great
annual bonspiei, lasting several
weeks, will be staged as usual. Banff
in the Canadian Rockies, which is
fast becoming as popular in winter
as it has long been in summer, is
planning to outdo former efforts.
Winter sports are enjoyed there all
through the white season and will
culminate in a gay carnival lasting
from Feb. 9 to 111, the last two days
being devoted to a bonspiei. Dog
races are a feature of Banff's winter season anil famous teams from
Le Pas will run at Banff. Le Pas
will celebrate in carnival style from
March 8 to 15, during which period
the famous 200-mile non-stop dog-
team race will be run. Revrlstoke,
a stronghold of ski-jumping, will
stage contests Feb. 5th and 6th.
Both Montreal and Quebec are
making extraordinary preparations
for this season's programs.   Mount
Montreal Girls Abe expects
on snows hoes
Royal, in the former, provides an
unexcelled playground wliere skiing,
snowshoeing, bob-sledding and tobogganing may be enjoyed at their
best. Skating contests, torchlight
festivities on the Mountain and the
presence of professional entertainers, provide amusement for Mont-
realers and visitors.
Quebec is really the Capital of
Winter Sports in Canada, its Duf-
ferin Terrace and. Chateau Fron-
tenac are names to conjure with
among winter sport devotees all over
Canada and the United States.
The three-track toboggan slide on
the Terrace is generally the centre
of attraction and crowds- line ita
sides to watch the swift flying toboggans. A fine ski-jump, a skating
rink, indoor and outdoor curling,
contests and parades by the many
ski and snowshoe clubs fill every
waking hour. A team of husky dogs
with sleigh and driver is maintained
by the Chateau management for the
use of the public.
Quebec's carnival will end in a
riot of excitement when the third
Eastern International Dog-Team
Derby is run there on Feb. 21, 22
and 23. Both Canadian and American teams to the number of about
eighteen, will strive to win the Gold
Cup, Silver Cup and $2,000 in prize
money. __

lnvermere, B.C., Jan. 21.—At a
recent meeting of the directors of the
Windermere District Agricultural
Association and Farmers' Institute,
Mr. H. C. Rayson was appointed president; A. G. Cuthbert, vice president;, nnd Basil G. Hamilton was appointed secretary treasurer.
Strong resolutions were passed
condemning the present icy-flooded
condition of the main road leading
from the west to Lake Windermere
depot, a condition which it is thought
could have been prevented had
prompt action been taken.
The following resolution was also
unanimously passed:
"That we, the directors of our
combined organizations desire to
place on record and to express in the
heartiest manner possible, our appreciation of the services given to our
organizations through many years by
Mr. A. G. Cuthbert, our retiring president, who in various capacities has
long served on our executive.-
"Further, in this connection we
would like to couple the name of
Mrs. Cuthbert who has been untiring
in helpinp on our cause in many different ways."    Carried unanimously.
the ground in (rood mechanical condition nnd free from weeds for suc-
j ceeding crops.
I The past season at the Dominion
i experimental station at lnvermere,
(three varieties of potatoes were
| tried out in field plots in the various
rotations. The Rural Russet (russet type of Sir Walter Raleigh) yielded 17 tons per acre. Thc Sir Walter Raleigh yielded 14 tons 1856 lbs.
'per acre; und the Netted Gems 13
tons 150-1 lbs. per acre. These are
all good commercial varieties of exit-client quality and satisfactory yield.
These potatoes at harvest time were
worth $;i0 per ton f.o.b. local shipping point. With these yields ami
prices potato growing should prove a
profitable side line. While these
yields are above thc average, there
is no reason why the grower cannot
do as well or better, as all that is required are good cultural methods and
good, vigorous, healthy tubers for
seed. The selling price noted above
may also seem high for an average
yenr, but even at $20.00 per ton. f.
o.b, shipping point, there should be
money in potatoes. ,

A remedy for every pain
which would come up for serious con
glderation, the most important of
which were the Gold Creek water diversion work and the Slaterville water extension problem. Reference
was also made to the large deduction mads by the government from
the share of the liquor profits which
should have come to the city. One
of the first acts of the mayor, according to his statement at the council, was writing a letter to the government, stating that the deduction
as they understood was only a part
of the amount due by the city, and
that they would like some statement
ns to it. He informed the department that the impression obtained
that these charges included the cost
of the prosecuting of cases outside of
the city. He pointed out the unfairness of thu deductions if such was
the case, and asked for their assurance that such was not so. He said
that the present system was most, unfair ami that if Mr. Manson wished
to see the liquor act properly enforced ho should sec to it that his liquor
vendors did not sell to those whose
purchases indicated that the liquor
wns for re-snlo,
The mayor stated thnt he would
appoint a special 'committee to Investigate the trouble with regard to the
Slaterville water extension, but with
regard t o the Gold Creek proposition he did not core to make any
pronouncement till he was more familiar with the situation and more
acquainted with tho facts. He understood thai in connection with this
a considerable amount of fluming
would be necessary. He felt that the
government might reasonably be expected to contribute a portion of the
cost as a number of property owners
residing outside the city would benefit by the diversion of Gold Creek.
Such an application had been made
before to thc government at which
.time they had said they could not see
their way clear to grant the request.
It was suggested that an application
be made for the creation of a water
area, and felt that there would be a
change if the water department took
the matter up.
In reference to the work for the
coming year, the mayor said in connection with the oiling of the streets
he thought it would be necessary to
treat Van Horne Street from Baker
Street to the bridge near the freight
shed, and the avenues east of that
portion as far as Hanson. Until that
was done conditions on Baker Street
could not be improved. According
to the mayor, he was of the impression that the government was pre-

In reference to tin* matter of
beautifying Cranbrook, he considered
the best way of doing this would be
for the city to establish a system of
b.oulevarding, the charge for same
to be on the frontage basis.
Re the Fire Department, one
change he thought might tend to
greater efficiency     was    having the
chief at the fire hall practically all
the time. He stated that the chief
had expressed his willingness to occupy certain premises adjacent to
the fire hall. Thin could be d ie tf
the cost of fixing up thi building
was not excessive.
He was of trie same opinion as
others that the pn ■■' nl fire Biron was
not efficient as i . and sug
gested thai arrangements be made to
get the old steam whi from the
power house and havi I.rated in
the CP.R. boilei I ouse, to be used in
the event of an al u n. From a conversation with Si it. Fletl he believed such arrangements could he
made. He recommended thai Uie fire
committee take the matter up.
Th mayor suggested that for the
coming year a consolidation of committees be made. He felt that at
present there was ai overli pp :-,<„ of
the authorities of committees, and
felt that the work could be handled
more effectively in this way with
much less loss of time than with the
larger number of committees.
As this would have to ba done by
by-law the mayor made the following
appointments only  temporarily:
Streets, Watei an/1 >' iwi n --Aldermen Cameron, Fink Genest and
Light, Fire and Police- Aldermen
Dunlop, Flowers and Fink.
Finance—Aldermen Dunlop, Flowers and MacPherson.
Special committee to invest gate
Slaterville waterworks situation —
Aldermen Cameron, Genest and Fiuk.
Another matter dealt with was the
extending of protection to thoso outside of the city. It was questioned
whether some system could not be
devised whereby the city would get
some reimbursement for this.
With regard to counr ' proceedings
his worship expressed the hope that
the council's business would be speeded up and that mure business should
be done in committee and brought
in as reports to the council as a
whole, and that thc council meetings
should be over by 10 o'clock, which
all sounded good to the occupants of
the press gallery.
In regard to the amalgamation of
committees, Aldermen Genest, Cameron and Fink expressed their approval of thc idea. Alderman Flowers was of the opinion that if the
old   system   were   followed     of     the
chairman ef the committee being
more directly responsible for the affairs  of his  con i  .   this   would
mean that under tl • new arrangement he would have more than he
could handle, h was suggested by
Alderman Fink ti rt in the event of
n surplus of work the chairman
could appoint sub-committees. Accordingly Alderman Cameron gave
notice that at the next regular meeting he would Introduce a motion that
the procedure by law be so amended.
Under correspondence, a copy of
the Town Planning Act, whicli has
received the second ami third reading
in the legislature, was presented by
the provincial secretary for consideration by the council. As this was
n matter which the city did not deem
of importance to them the letter was
received and filed.
From the city of Prince George
came a copy of a resolution to the
government re thi' matter of tlie deductions made from their share of
the   liquor   profits. What   Prince
Goorge said to the government could
never he described as of iy mincing
nature, lt was, however, hut Tin expression of lhe feelings of various
places that had been mulcted hy the
governmenl hut put in more forcible
language, ln view of the fact thnt
the mayor ha,I already taken the
matter up, il was determined by the
council not to lake the letter up for
consideration ponding ihe result of
the communications with the government, It was accordingly received and.filed. Alderman Genest
cmntod a laugh when he said lhat he
would like to have something to say
nbout the deal, only the mayor had
intimated that tie would like ten o'-1
clock closing.
The matter of relief came up for j
consideration, and a grant which the
old council hail been allowing in one
ease  was  ordered  continued.

$1,200'. They had made satisfactory
arrangements with the band to play
[at the rink for §75.00 a month, plus
a bonus condition, and reported that

Mr. Moir considered that in taking
care of the young element for so
many hours during thc week, they
were  doing a  good  work.     He  was
'pleased to say thnt no trouble was
being experienced in this connection
and the management was getting on
very well with the young people.
Following Mr. Moir's report and ap- j
plication, he came in for a whole lot;
of nice tilings about the; work he is
doing in the public Interest.
Alderman Fink said It was deserving of the whole hearted support of
the  public generally. lie was in
sympathy with a refund being made
for the cost of public improvemnts.

The clerk is in communication with
inspector Baird as to tlie position of
ithe city in regard to the park plebiscite. It was '.he opinion of many
that as the matter was but a referendum that it carried.
I In connection with the matter of
the referendum. Mayor Roberts said
I that in regard to certain reports
which had gained circulation at the
time of the election, thnt he would
' benefit from the sale of this property
to the city, he would like the press to
make it clear that such wns not the
I case, as by an agreement with Mr.
Baker he was not in a position to
1 charge for any service in connection
[with his business. Alderman Fink
thought the reason for the poor support the by-law received was that the
preceding council had made too little headway with the other park, to
be asked to handle another.    Alder-
| man Genest thought that the tourist
park feature mitigated against the
support of the measure.
On motion of Aldermen Fink and
Flowers the old rate to the Cranbrook Sash & Door Co. was extended
to Mnrch 1st.
Notice of motion was given for the
introduction of au advanced poll bylaw.
Aldermen Cameron and Flowers
suggested by way of a motion that
the Police Commission moke a re-census of Crnnbrook's population from
the canine standpoint.
Alderman   Genest   slated   that   he,
was   pleased   with  the  ideas  of  the
mayor with regard i<> the cutting of
the mill rule, and considered that it
was time to cut mil some of the over-
bead,    lie would accordingly like t<*
move that lhe city dispense with the
services of the cily engineer.    He did
not   consider   that   Ihis   official   was
necessary.      lie asked that instead al

j was nothing now but what, a handy j

no seconder to tbis motion, alderman i
Flowers, who said that he was not in

services  of  a  city  engineer,   moved
that the salary he forthwith $200 per
month.    This proposal also failed to
receive a seconder, and on the suggestion  of  Alderman  Fink  that  the
matter   he   deferred   until   a   larger
representation   of   tho   council   was
present, the matter was dropped.

Among other things, Mount Robson can be regarded as the most1
frequently photographed mountain j
in the whole of Canada, the Continental Limited of the Canadian National Railways stopping for five
minutes at the foot of this monarch of the Rockies in order that
tourists who aro passing through
may secure photographs showing
its lofty, snow-capped peak.
Just outside of ths boundaries of
the National Park is one of the
finest big-gttme hunting grounds
of tho continent, where black, cinnamon an i grixzly bear abound and
where ether bi'g game, such as bighorn mountain sheep and mountain

Miss Delia Greaves, whom they had
counted as tlieir mainstay. Without
her, they still played u very creditable game. The Bluebirds were delighted with their win, and are out
to hold the advantage they have
gained. For the first two periods
the play was very even, neither side
bcing superior. In the second period

Cheers for each team for their respective goal keepers would indicate

What Is, perhaps, the most wonderful hotel in the world, is located on
Jack Miner's farm at Kingsvillc, Ontario. The guests come from as far
north as the Arctic Circle and from as far south as the Gulf States, They
carry no baggage, are not required to register, pay nothing for board or
lodging, stay as long as they wish, and when they get ready to leave, they
take the elevator for the sky — and oil they go in beautiful winged flotillas,
honking and quacking their happiness and grutitude.
This is Jack Miner's wild goose and duck sanctuary, and It is one of the
sights of Canada. The birds learned thut he was a friend of theirs, communicated that fact to their acquaintances, and now thousands of them in their
Bpring and autumn migrations visit his little watering resort for a few weeks'
lay-off and recuperation, jack's feed bill runs pretty high. It takes from
1,000 to 2,000 bushels of corn per yenr to satisfy his feathered visitors and
not slight anybody. But he loves the birds and the birds love him, and where
mutual affection exists, he figures thu matter of expense doesn't count.
All the wild birds that visit Jack Miner appear to know him personally,
and are as tame as kittens when he is around. He hns studied their vocalization, and he declares that he understands what many of their throat sounds
mean. There is no doubt in his mind that they talk to one another. Many of
these birds return to him year after year in their biennial trips across the
country, the tags on their bodies showing this. Many, however, are shot or
meet with other misfortunes and do not return.
So It is seen that Jack Miner exemplifies a high type of Sportsman.
He is protecting bird life and Btriving to preserve it for future generations
In striking contrast to the thoughtless who slaughter our beautiful and fast-
diminishing game life, often from pure wantonness rather than from necessity.
Jack Miner Is not only a naturalist but a humanitarian, philosopher,
raconteur and fun-maker. Humor bubbles and foams from his conversation
cup. Optimism and kindness ooze from his pores. He has no college diploma
and was kicked out of school by old man Necessity at a very early age. But
despite these literary handicaps, he's one of the best informed men to be mat,
and n a public aptakar and entertainer ha baa attained co&Unant-wldaftan.
