To Assist Athletics
Mr. li. T, Molr, secretary of thc
Amateur Athlettc Association, in addressing the council, read a letter
requesting tho consideration of the
city fathers lu the building of an ex-
tension, BO x IH feet, to the Arena
Rink, on the Burwell Avenue side.
This oxtonslon would provide for ad.
ditional waiting room accomodation,
and would be a much appreciated
improvement to tbe building. After
consideration of the matter, it was
moved by Alderman Balment and seconded by Alderman Flowers that the
decision' of the council bc deferred
pending the submitting of an estimate of cost of same.
Mr. Art Wallace, representing the
Lacrosse Club, made a request for the
use of the eity roller for use ot the
Athletic Grounds. He also asked that
the water be tinned on, and pointed
to the fact that the hose ut present
available was not sufficient to reach
certain parts of the field where water was very much needed. It was
tbe opinion 'of the council, however,
that the matter of hose equipment
win one that came under the jurisdiction of the leasees of the grounds,
and that the application for the water
should come from the Cranbrook
Amateur Atldetic Association. On
motion of Aldermen Jackson ond
Flowers, it was decided that the request for the use of the roller on the
grounds be granted.

city band, in addressing the council,
gave a comprehensive outline of the
regulations for thc formation and
controlling of a city band. He went
fully ini.i the result of his efforts
up to the present time with respect
to the formation of the band, and
gave an illuminating report on the
condition of the city instruments, intimating the new ones that were
neccssaiy. as well as those requiring
repairs tueh as mouthpieces ond lyres.
He asked that the city give consideration to his request for a grant of
approximate!) $;.,0.(H* for repairs to
certain instruments required. He also
intimated that his fee for three
months for his time in organizing
and tutoring lhe members of the
hand would be $60.00 per month,
ln making litis request, he gave an
undertaking that the band would give
its services free of charge to all the
civic celebrations and would ploy on
the streets of the city or in such
other places as may be appointed
once n week during the summer
months, weather permitting.
Later in the evening the matter
was dealt with by the council, and
it was unanimously decided to comply wilh Mr. Ford's request wilh regard I., tbe appropriations asked.

a large attendance from the outside

School Board Will Put Two
Proposals Before
Wednesday evening; lnst the f'rnn-
lirook School Board held a joint conference with the city council, at which
tlu* matter of providing increased
accomodation at the high schnol was
taken up. During the evening the
opinions of the trustees and councillors were expressed. Il was not possible, however, to arrive nt any conclusion, it being felt that additional
information should be had before
they would like to definitely state
what course to suggest.
Following the specinl meeting, the
regular meeting of the board took
plftCO, at which the following matter*.; were denlt with:
The secretary was asked to give

On Tuesday evening a number uf
Cranbrook members of the Native
Sons faced the unseasonably cold
weather to go to Kimberley for a
meeting called there for the purpose
of installing the officers recently
elected. All who went up are unnni-
nious in expressing the opinion that
the warmth of the welcome they received from the Kimberley members
more thnn mude up for the chilliness of the elements, nnd the meeting
was a good one, despite the fnct thut
some who hud intended going from
here were prevented.
Mr. V. Z, Manning conducted the
installation ceremony, and the following offieers who were present were
installed in proper course into their
respective  chairs:
President .

Other officers who were not able
to be present will be given installation at the next meeting.
A social time with refreshments
was enjoyed beforc the meeting broke
up, which wus not the leost enjoyable
part of the meeting.
The Beaver Brotherhood is boom-
Ing. Cranbrook joined the movement
some time apo, and on the first of the
month Mr. Norton P. Brand, of Ker-
nle, organized the third chapter at
Creston. This is an excellent show-
.ng for this time of the year, for fall
is the proper time for organization of
every description. With this start the
Brotherhood should easily number a
dozen chapters by the close of the fall
campuicn, which will begin ahout
September 1st. Inquiries regarding
the new movement are coming in
from all parts of Canada.
On Tuesday evening, April 26th,
the men of Fernie will entertain thc
Crnnbrook chapter of the Brotherhood at a bnnquet to be held in thc
basement of the United Church. The
Ladies' Aid will cuter, and the in-
lention is to show the people of Crnnbrook that Fernie knows how to do
the proper thing.

Thursday last the pupils and teach
era of the Central school were ut
home tu their friends, when for several hours in the afternoon the work
of the school for the past year was
examined by a large number of those
interested in the welfare of the children.
H&ving passed through the many
rooms, one could not help but be impressed with the excellent work thai
is being done, as evinced by the fine
exhibitions hunj,' on tlie walls of
the several cluss room-i. One thing
that was particularly noticable was
the beauty and artistic nature of tht*
displays, each room resembling an
art gallery, while muny hnd exhibit*
of more than ordinary interest.
Among the latter was the representation of a .scene from "The Lady of
the Lake," Kilena Isle. Loch Katrine.
This was very cleverly done by pupils
of Miss Woodland's clnss. Gurnet
Blaine and Gordon Dezall.
One has only to make a visit to
tho school on an occasion of this
kind to realize the amount of worK
that the tenchers have to accomplish,
and to become convinced that trying
to implant the three "R" in the
risinn nenerution is no sinecure bj
any means. In this regard it was nf
interest to note that some of the
pupils hnve a proper conception of
Uie none too enviable position of
Iheir teacher, as may be judged from
a few of the verses written by some
of the pupils of Miss McDonald'--
loom at the Central school, which
were on exhibition.
If I were a teacher for just one day
I'd let the children laugh and play;
I'd give thi* big ones lots of work
And  see  that  none  of  them did
I'd give the little ones lots of books
With pictures of hears nnd running
But   I   would  only   last one day
If I'd let the work go on that way.
If 1 were a teacher for jwst one day
I'd make the pupils work away;
I'd give them spellings they had never
So that they would think me mean;
And I wouid be so strict a creature
That they wmld long for their own
teacher, Q      .
Many also took the opportunity to
visit the manual training school,
where they got a good idea of the
fxcellent work being done by Mr. F.
G. Morris in the training of the boy-.
An interesting program of music
wus put on during the afternoon by
the clnss rooms, Miss Kathleen Edmondson being responsible for its
eudership in the ubsence of Miss Me-
Dermot, who had trained them in
the work, but who was compelled to
enve earlier in the afternoon.
Miss Woodland and her staff have
every renson to fee! gratified with
the  showing made.
On Monday of lust week the South
Wnrd School held their visitors' day.
prior to closing for the holidays.

Relates Work
of Session
Local Member Tells of Record
of Government at
At thc meeting of the district Conservative Association on Mondny evening, N. A. Wnllinger. the local
member of the legislature, guve an
interesting resume of the session recently closed, and his own particular
activities during the session. He had
served on two committees, municipal
and mining, the latter being the more
important, many more meetings having been held. The government majority wns preponderant on nil the
committees, making it impossible to
<ret nny measure through, unless the
government agreed, and among the
things which he had tried to get approved was the opening of a government ore testing plant for the
'nterlor district, where small ore shipments could be sent, subject to the
approval of the district mining en-
rlneers, for proper valuation. This
■■"ns one thing he contended would be
in the interests of the mining indus-
try in this section, ns there wns at
present only one testing plant at
oresent available, which wns the property of the Consolidated Company.
Their   L* fit] at ire   Record
Mr. Wallinger showed how the
membership of the legislature is divided into the various committees,
*n whom are placed the men most
versed on the matters concerned, nnd
o them nre detailed thc matters renting to thnt subject, so thnt members are not led to tnlk on subjects
in which they arc not well informed.
Mr. Wallinger showed how sixty*
h'ee of the ninety-eight measures
which the government had advanced
n the session were amendments to
heir own previous enactments, which
ndicated n good den! of ill-digested
'eglslation hnd been brought up.
When it was considered thnt there
A*ere ulso a number ef private bills,
t meant that the actual new legislative program of the government
ould have been put through in a
very  short  time.
In connection with the devflop-
ii»,nt of mining. Mr. Wallinger point-
d to the recent announcement that
he dividends of thc four largest min-
ntr companies for last year exceeded
■hat of all the chartered banks in
•he ccuatry—one of the mining com-
oanies being the Consolidated. He
'urther believed that the future of
B.C. as a mining province was still
n the making, and that it would become the premier province in this respect.
**     -     '    Jk    *VU    +*mmp».nf1   .
Passing to the record of the gov-
?rnment, he pointed to the enormous
growth of the provincial debt, show-
nv how the government was responsible  for saddling   the   people  with
-uch a tremendous burden.
190.1   (beginning of McBride government)     . 112,000,000
1918 (end of McBrid? regime and beginning of
Liberal government)      19,000,000'
1927 (aftf-r eleven vears
of Liberal rule)     91,000,000
This meant a net debt of {85,000,-
000 for a population of 700,000 people, many times higher than any oth-
ar province. The Minister of Finance had stated that there was a
wave of prosperity in the province,
but four tax sales the government
had held of $8,000,000 worth of taxes
ha? realized them only {50,000 over
the expenses of the sales. To give
i still better showing on paper as
to the finances, the valuation of gov-
ernment assets had been greatly in-
Teased in the last two years, and
about seventeen millions of debt, carried along a* "revenue producing,"
and expected to pay for itself, was
known to be worth not half that.
Public   Work*   Volet
As to the treatm*nt of the district
by the public works department,
while it was difficult for an opposition member to accomplish very
much, he had gone into matters very
thoroughly with the minister of pubic works and the chief engineer, and
in addition to the |55,000 announced
for road maintenace in this riding, he
felt that from the loan measure other
■ urns would be available that would
take the appropriation of this riding
up to nbout $120,000.
Mr. Wallinger explained his views
on the question of extending the salo
of beer by the hottle to hotel keep-
rs, stating that to deprive them of
this privilege, so long as beer hought
at the stores could be consumed in
hotel rooms, was placing a handicap
on the hntelmen, and placing them
in an unfair position. Advantage wns
being taken of this at the coast, and
he recounted conditions he had personally seen that led him to believe
that the measure he had seconded
would better the conditions.
Wednesday evening a meeting of
thc Cranbrook Rod and Gun Club
was held, at which -several matters of
importance were discussed. Tha
treasurer was pleased to report contributions to the funds of the club
from the following:
Otis Staples Lumber Co    126.00
B.C. Spruce Mills      25.00
Crow's Nest Pass Lbr. Co. 26.00

THURSDAY, APRIL 21st,  1927
THK report of the annual statement of the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Co., as given out
last week, always has an especial interest for
this district. Once again rising profits arc indicated, and what is of mure importance, complete satisfaction is recorded at the progress of operations at
tlu* Sullivan Mine, the Concentrator, and also at
Moyie, At the last named point it is also indicated
that there will lie new explorations carried on to
determine whether further development of the St.
Eugene will be worth while, in view of the advanced
practice in dealing with low grade ore. Kimberley,
it is satisfactory to note, remains the keystone,

What this means to this
but even if the establish
ment of well-equipped stores in that place has meant
in some cases less business for the stores here, the
city get-, benefit indirectly in many ways from
operations carried on in such an immense way. A
big program of new work has been carried on there
by the company, and indications are that there is
no apparent diminution of the ore supply there.
There arc also indications that other interests
at Kimberley are planning developments wliich will
mean further activity there, all of which will help
Cranbrook, and if as surmised, a few years more
will sec the establishment of another smelting plant
THE announcement that a measure iias been introduced into the British parliament to give
thc wgmtn the vote on the same terms as the
m»n, may not seem ul" particular importance in this
country, but it recalls many years of struggle and
importuning, even to the point of violence, whii
women in Britain have waged for this privileg
It is nut many years ago that the "suffragettes" had
the centre of the stage iu England, when women
who were called "extremists" carried on their campaign with what seemed extraordinary tactics to get
the subject uf female enfranchisement before the
public. "Votes for Women" was the cry, and all
maimer of unusual tactics, not excepting lhe hunger
strike in prison, were resorted to making the problem a pressing one for the British government. A
big section of the public at that time judged them
harshly, scotTed at the women who thus martyred
themselves for the cause, aud the women who advocated the suffrage were the butt of witticism all the
way from the not-too-choice jokes of the glitter to
the clever lampooning in Punch, That tliey labored
well, nevertheless, is now apparent, and the argument of the opposition to the movement now is not
against the principle of equal suffrage, but that the
women's vote in Britain will so far outnumber the
men that there is no knowing to what it may lead.
It is on this account that a proposal may be brought
forward to make the women's voting age twenty-fi
years instead of twenty-one.

The usual monthly meeting of tho
Wnrdner PareirtTeacher Association
wns held in the school on Thursday
afternoon of lnst jyeek. About fifteen members und officevs were present, und the meeting* opened at 3.80
p.m. with tiie president in the chair.
Minutes of the post meeting were
rend, approved and pnssed. The
treasurer's report was also given, and
one or two outstanding bills were
voted to be paid. The social
convenor, Mrs. Frank Thompson, read
a report on the afternoon tea held
at her home, under the auspices of
tlie association, on March 1 Tth.
Thirty of the townsladies wen* present, und the total sum of $9.70 was
taken during the afternoon, $7.80
being the proceeds of the tea, and
$'■2.4U from the rending of the tea
cups, Mrs. Fred Kershaw kindly

accepted by tiie members.
Wi Birch, convenor of ti
visiting committee, rend he
stilting that her committee V
schools ns per instructions from thc
president. In the report was stated
the need of various equipment,
especially for the junior school, the
principal need being, in the opinion
of the committee, u fence placed
around the playground, in order to
protect the smaller kiddles In the
mutter of cars heing driven ul a fust
rate of speed immediately in front
of the schools. Clothes pegs fur the
cloakrooms, und hooks for use among
the junior pupils, ure ulso badly
needed. In the matter of scliool
work, this was found to be progressing very satisfactorily, it wus stated. This report cume before Hit
members for general discussion, regarding the purchase of the necessary
items, ln .the mutter of the fence
for the playground, it was decided
that this, calling for a large expenditure wns really n matter for the
school board to provide, as is usually
done. In consequence tho school
committee of the association, working in co-operation with the board
were instructed by the president tt
wait upon thc board with u view to
having the fence erected if possible.
The pegs and other minor ite
ordered purchased Immediately, lte-
gnrding the books ulso listed as essential, since the school department
furnishes hooks for use in the schooh
each year for thc new term, it was
decided to allow the matter to rest
for the present. Upon the receipt
of the new books from the -department, however, these Will be inspect-
ed by the teachers and committee,
and those required, but not Included
in the shipment, will be furnished by
the association, a list of which will
be given the treasurer by the teachers
for purchase. These matters ot
business were passed and the school
visiting convenor's report accepted.
New business wns the next order oi
business at the meeting. Under this
order several items came up for discussion. The matter of playground
equipment was thoroughly discussed,
the erecting of swings and seesaws
comprising these activities for tlu
present. A book containing plans
fotr the erection and purchase of
these articles was inspected, and t
committee comprising Mrs. Ci. V
Sinclair, Miss Hopkins and Mr. Ii. 0.
Iverson instructed to obtain tht
necessary data regarding their erection, etc., which will be given at the
May monthly meeting of the Association, The raising of the necessary
funds, ways antl means of doing
same, in order to enable the local
association to purchase these various
items for the improvement of the
local schools, was next brought forward. Since many requests for a
whist drive, conducted by the association as on former occasions, have
been received, this matter was
broached by the social convenor.
Meeting with the entire approval of
the members it was decided that a
whist drive with an alternative of
bridge, if desired, would be held in
the Club Hall on Friday evening,
April 2i»th. Prizes will be awarded,
refreshments served, and following
cards it is probable thnt a short
period of dancing will also be arranged. Another form of entertainment was brought forward by the
president for general discussion, this
being a tentative .suggestion in the
form of a play to be given by the as-
sociation' in June. One of the members, Mrs. Heifer, has had much experience in training and directing the
presentation of various sketches or
plays, and at present hns n number
of comedy plays on hand from which

Easter Services al lho United Church
Tire Easter season was marked by
a church whicli was literally packed
to th« doors. At the morning service
the junior choir was assisted by the
, Sunday school orchestra and Mr. Vin
cent Fink. The choir rendered ill a
most creditable manner two excellent
anthems, "The Lilies' Message," and
"The   Saviour  Lives."   Eev.  Bryce

Wallace gave an appropriate Kaster
addrOBS on thr "Easter Dawn.'* At
thifl service forty new member's were
welcomed into fellowship, twenty-two
by profession of faith, and eighteen
j by certificates, and one hundred and
sixty persons partook of the Sacrament. It was estimated that close
on three hundred people were present
at the morning service. Every available inch of apace waa utilized, the
vestry also bein^ crowded. It was
made evident to all th.it a new church
is an Imperative need. The evening
service was entirely choral, the pro-
(Tram being arranged by Mrs. F. M.
MacPherson. The building was again
crowded. The deathless songs of
Kaster were presented by the senior
choir in two beautiful anthems,
"Jesua is Risen/' and "The Resurrection Morn," the sulo parts being taken by Mrs. W. Nlsbet, Mrs. J. Norgrove, Mrs. G. S. Mcintosh, Mrs. F.
M. MacPherson nnd Mr. Coleman.
Mr. Vincent Kink rendered, in his
own muster y style, a violin solo,
while Mrs. N. R. Park was heard to
advantage In the solo, "1 Know That j
My   Redeemer   Llveth,"   from   the
"Messiah." The large congregation!
joined heartily in the singing of thel
welt known Kaster hymns. Tbe ser-1
vices were in every way memorable j
and inspiring. The church was tastefully decorated by Mr. Willis, of
Cranbrook Greenhouses.
The children of the Sunday School
met In the main body of the church
after the moi ning service and the
junior choir sang acceptably. Mr. G.
J. Spreull conducted a special Kaster
service for the children, the praise
being led by Mr. J. M. Clark.
For the week preceding Easter
special services were conducted by
the minister, Rev. J. Evans and Rev.
V. H. McNeil assisting. All these
meetings were well attended and a
fine spiritual tone pervaded them.
On Friday evening, at the Reception
and Preparatory service a large congregation witnessed the coming into
fellowship, and heard the profession
of faith, from a goodly number of
the senior Sundny school and Young
People's Society members. It was
the largest reception service in the
history of the church, which speaks
well for the future success of the
United Church in Cranbrook.
Next Sunday Rev. E. Leslie Best,
B.D., of Fernie, will exchange pulpits with Rev. Bryce Wallace. Mr.
Best is one of the outstanding young
preachers of thc United Church.
Eastertide at St. Mary's Church
The Holy Week services, so impressive and devotional, were attended in
great numbers at St. Mary's Church. '
On  Easter morning   for   the   com-
munipn mass the attendance was the '
largest ever, children and adults all I
receiving Holy Communion.    For the '
High mass, the church was filled, the
altar being beautifully decorated, and |
the choir rendered Leonard's Mass in
master   fashion.    The   pastor,   Rev. J
Father J. P. Ehmann, preached on the
resurrection of Christ. j
Presbyterian Church
Like most other churches, our
Easter services were largely attended. The morning service, which was
given over to the dispensation of the
Sacrament of the Lord's Supper, was
one of the largest in years. A gratifying phase of the service was the reception, or the announcement of the
reception, of a number of new members, most of these being young
people, and on profession of faith. It
is very encouraging indeed to see the
young people of our church respond
so readily to the call of the Master.
In spite of the inclemency of the
weather, there was a large congregation nt. thc evening service. Special
Easier music was rendered by the
choir, thc anthems being. "1 Am He
That Llveth," and "This Is The Day."
Knox Church Notes
The Women's Missionary Society
will hold their annual Thanksgiving
Offering on Wednesday. April 20th,.
Mr. Morley, of Kimherley. will he the
speaker of the evening. A musical
program is being arranged by Mrs.
J. L, Walker, and everyone is asked
to be there. The meeting begins at
8 o'clock in the evening.
Rev. R. G. MacBeth has just returned from thc Assembly's committees antl has reported that from the
Atlantic to the Pacific the greatest
enthusiasm prevails. Since 19-25 the
membership, which was then about
150.000, has increased to 175,000.
The two colleges, in Toronto and
Montreal, report a large increase in
the number of students, and the walls
of denominationajism, which were
thought to be crumbling, are being
rebuilt. We are thankful that we are
in n position to make our appeal to a
certain temperament everywhere.
Baptist Church
The Kaster season is the season of
triumph for the Christian church
since it represents the triumphal
cilmas to the life of our Lord, the
risen Christ, Our religion centres
not in a dead man, but in a living
lAtrd.    A  very sincere nnd reverent
congregation gathered in the Baptist
Church on Easier Sunday morning lo
take part in the worship "of II ini
who was dead, and is alive again,"
The Kaster anthem presented by the
choir was much appreciated. In tiie
evening the choir had charge of the
service, at whicli time tliey presented
iheir Kaster cantata, the rendition of
which occupied just about one hour.
The «olo5, duets nnd trios, as well as
the choruses, were very well presented indeed, wliich reflects much credit
not only upon the Blngers, but also
upon the choir leader, Mr. J. L.
Calmer, and th.* organist. Miss
Thelma Bartle. This is the second
musical festival given by the choir in
the course of a few months besides
their regular work each Sunday.
It is now almost seven months
since I arrived in Cranbrook to take
over the work laid down by Rev. W.
T. Tapscott. The foundation had
been "well and truly laid" under his
ministry, so that it was not al all
difficult to tuke up the work where
he had left off. We feel that we
have made some pt ogress, ami that
our efforts are being rewarded in
seeing men and women, boys and
girls, heing brought into louch with
the living Christ.
V. II. MacNEILL, Pastor.
Anglican ILaiW-r Services
The congregation.*- ;ii Christ Church
for ihe Kaster services were the best
for Kaster during tin- last len years,
except that the evening numbers were
smaller, owing to weather conditions,
which were more like Christmas than
Easter. The special Kaster music was
much enjoyed and the Chora! Eucharist at 11 a.m. was attended by an
