New Lease Of

Matters of Importance to Farmers Up At Institute
Auunal Meeting
"Unite Or Perish" Title Of
Address on Friday
Night Last
Tht1 annual mooting of the Gran-
brook Farmers' Institute w»h held
in thc city hull, on Saturday, March
14th, at 2 p.m., and there were some
eighteen members present, and also
Mr. Flett, Superintendent of thc C
P.K., who is chairman of tho agricultural committee of the Board of
Trade; Mr. McCosham of tho Creamery, the new manager; and Mr.
Orchard, the district forester.
The secretary's address showed
a reasouahle balance in the treasury
and while the membership was small
last year, there is apparently good
hopes of a larger membership this
The president, A. B. Smith, in his
address, touched upon the death of
W. T. McDonald, Live Stock Commissioner; Mr. E. C. Smith and A.
3. Miller, both old timers in this district and former members of the Institute, and also the removal from
the district of C. S. Fleming, a former president of the Institute. He
informed the Institute that he had
just received a wire from the Coast
stating that permits for the importation of nursery stock without the
trip to the coast for fumigation
would be issued in the next few days,
which he felt was at least some return for the fight he had been making for the last ten years on this
matter. Full explanation will be
given in next week's issue.
He also spoke of the increased
service possible through the district
agriculturist's office contingent upon the appointment of an assistant
to Mr. Hay in that office which
would obviate the frequent closing of
the office during Mr. Hay's necessary absences. He suggested that
the Institute should discuss the advisability of requesting the' locating
of illustration stations in East Kootenay by the federal department, who
have already some 14 such stations j
in other parts of the province. The'
consideration of a plan to carry out ■
a Farmers' Institute excursion ncxtj
summer from all the Institutes in
East Kootenay to the Experimental
Farm at lnvermere; the benefits to
be derived from windbreak planting
on St. Mary's prairie and the advisability nf appointing a committee to
consult with the Stock Breeders', the
Forest Branch and the police in the
matter of the number of worthless
horses taking tip good grazing on the
range nnd suggesting that tt would
be wise that the city police Impound
miserable and worthless animals,
that some arrangement -should be
made by wliich instead    of    selling
The Knights of Pythias Hull was
pretty woll tilled on Friday night
last, when Sam Scarlett, of Leaven*
worth prison fame, spoke to a most
attentive audience of l.W.W. men
and a few citizens of other views.
One must give Mr. Scarlett credit
for being a speaker of no mean ability. He is well versed in views pertaining to capital nnd In bur, and has
a manner nf getting his ideas across,
especially with the sympathetic audience that was his on this occasion.
Differing greatly from the manner
of the champion of the labor cause,
Mrs. Henderson, who spoke in the
Auditorium the previous Sunday,
Scarlett took a hostile attitude to ull
and sundry who did not think as he
did. He immediately set up the
church, other political parties, the
labor organizations other than his
own, and also the monster, capital,
and let go his barrage on them all,
putting one in mind of the pet soldier boy with whom the fond mother
claimed the rest of the regiment was
out of step
Step by step he traced a gradual
industrial development from primitive man, which condition he possibly
thinks was the Ideal, down to the
present organization of society,
which he considers hopelessly wrong
—wrong to such on extent that there
is now no common ground between
those whom he condemns as responsible for these conditions, and his
class, who suddenly springing into;
being, constitute themselves as the
possessors of the only cure for the
ills from which they have determined
society hns been suffering While
the liberties of the United States
hnve been denied Mr. Scarlett, and
he knows that while in Canada he
must bridle his tongue, still one!
would not deny him his right to his
own opinions. These opinions, how*
ever,- are now worn threadbare, having been expressed too often on pint-1
forms such as his. His many nicely
worded phrases were well calculated
lo appeal to his audience.
He condemned the present state of
society but offered no remedial
treatment except to stick together
like his "bunch of kittens," aloof
from all others until in some myste-
: i ions wny they became strong enough
to bring Into being their ideal form
of existence.
Having admitted that the mighty
monster, capital, is continually growing more heads, it is hard to see
how they ever expect to win the day.
as Mr. Scarlett says there is no com-
* mon ground between the opposing
j forces, so that conciliation is out of
the question. The implements of
j warfare, such ns the ballot, arms or
j other fomrs    of    punishment, which

.....        .    ,, .     , .   ,     tney claim their opponents hav
that   they   should   he   destroyed   for
the good of the district.
The chairman commented on a
number of matters wliich wen- the
subjects of amendments to different
nets of the legislature at the past
session, including the Animals Art
for protection against dogs; the Goat
Breeders' Act; the institutes Act,
amending the Women's Institute section; the Co-Operative Societies Act

He started his address with the
hackneyed argument that in ull countries t'hristinnity was the forerunner of everything evil, but he did not
state thai he had any desire nt the
time that he wus Asked tn leave the
United States to take up his residence in nny of the countries where,
as lie put it. "tho tools of the tribe
belonged to no Henry Ford," nnd
where with the knowledge of the failure of nther forms of society, he
-COUld have built a nice little one of
his OWU and "let the rest of the
world go by."
The replacement of the hand tools
by the mnchine, the harnessing of
steam and other pwor, all contributed tn tho subjection of mnn to capital or "latter day barbarism," and
the institution of the bread line. Machines had replaced men in everything, till now one body was consigned to mastery and the other toj
slavery. According to his deduction
sixty-two ami one-half billion was
the wealth produced in the United I
States in 1024, while only ten billions were paid in wages nnd salaries.
The speaker claimed that the workers should stick together, instancing the example of kittens all huddled together in peace and harmony,
The white kitten did not call the
black kitten niggr, or the yellow kitten the "yellow peril"— all was lovely among them. This plan would be
very workable if the kittens did not
grow up to be eats, and become possessed of brains and personal ambitions, or have wives and mothers-in-
Inw and other little troubles that
would cast a ripple over the peaceful sea. If from the bunch one
could eliminate thc Ramsay McDon-
1 Joy riding last Sunday on the
Lumberton road will prove a somewhat costly experience to onfl Albert
Morrissetto, who was one of a party
of four, three men and a woman,
who made u merry purty out ir. that
direction thnt afternoon. There
was some whisky going around und
things later got out of hnnd. Mor-
. rtssetto took a notion to help himself to the taxi car that had brought
; the party out to their rendezvous,
; but was uot in a condition to handle
the car properly, with the result that
after a mile or so he drove the cur,
n McLaughlin, off the road, on to a
stump, tipping the car up on one
side, and inflicting considerable
damage to it and also to himself. He
was later picked up by the provincial
police in a dazed and bleeding state
and brought into the city with his
other merry friends. Charges of being intoxicated were laid, and Mor-
risetto was charged with driving a
car while intoxicated. He was given seven days for this, and was also
charged with appropriating the car
without the consent of the owner.
Sentence was withheld till next week
to give him a chance to make resti- ■
tution to the owner for the damage
to the cur which amounts to about
three hundred dollars Other members of the party were fined in various degrees, and the woman of the
party estrented bail of $2 rather
than go into things further, taking
the first train out of the city. Constable Saunders is doing everything
possible to put a atop to joy riding!
episodes of this nature, and any in-
fractions of the motor regulations, ■
especially respecting liquor in the
cars, will be severly dealt with. Automobiles don't run well on whisky,
and the duty of the police is to keep •
the highways free of peoplo who \
choose to make a menace of them-.
selves by driving to the common
danger, or driving in an intoxicated
condition. These practices the provincial police will do their utmost
to stop by apprehending the offenders. Drivers' licenses are now subject to cancellation for convictions,
and it behooves nil ears out on the
roads to act with circumspection and
with full regnrd for others.

meeting of the city council was held
in the council chamber, all the city

The minutes of the two previous
meetings, one special and one regular, were read and adopted.
Mayor Roberts reported the transfer of some sinking fund
for the purchase of other securities.
On motion of Alderman Fink the
action of the mayor was confirmed.
A letter was received from Nisbet
& Graham notifying the council that
documents for the transfer to the
city of the V. Hyde Baker estate,
which the city recently decided to
purchase for park purposes.
A letter was read from the Associated property owners of Vancouver
asking for a resolution endorsing the
Idea of city managership for municipal government. It was pointed
out that 330 places in the States

14 being in [Canada. The council
decided to take no action and the
communication was received and
Accounts amounting to $ri,r>7">.00

The report of dairy inspector Dr.

The works committee report showed that all necessary work had been
attended to. Certain necessary
street grading on Van Horne Street
iwas recommended. They also reported necessary work on the wnter

The light committee reported the
' usual routine1 operations of th* department, and in a recommendation
suggested certain  changes    in    the

The fire department turned in a
clean sheet for the month, there hav-
i ing been no alarms to respond to.
| The fire chief asked for the appointment of a clean up day as soon as
weather permits. An average pressure of 102 lbs. had been maintain-

! regard to the steam fire-whistle the

to report ut the next meeting.

Dominion Swine Breeders Go
Into Means of Developing
the Business
Mr. A. L. Hay, district agriculturist, who returned last week from
attending meetings of the Canadian
Swine Breeders' Association, reports
sessions of considerable interest to
farmers and others engaged in hog
raising. Representatives were present from nil the provinces.
The directors report showed thut
in 1924 there wore in all 12,423
pure bred hog registrations made
through the association, of which
not less thnn 7917 were for pure
bred Yorkshires. Far behind came
the Berkshires and the Tamworths,
but nil breeds except the Yorkshire
have been showing a consistent decrease in registrations for many
years. Saskatchewan heads the list
in registrations, having in all last
year 2781, nnd being very closely followed by Ontario, Alberta, and
Quebec. Tbe financial statement
showed a very satisfactory state of
affairs, with a big cash balance of
more than $15,000.
There are in all 3081 memberships
in the dominion association, as follows: Ontario 920, Saskatchewan
914, Alberta 750, Quebec (ifi5, British Columbia 139, Maritimes 128,
United States 6.
Reports were received from repre-
sentitatives from the various provinces, who told of the work being
done towards getting better hog
standards among the farmers of their
provinces. Not having been at the
meeting last year, Mr. Hay had no
definite report to make of the work
done with the association grant in
this province, but he outlined the
steps being undertaken to educat
the boys and girls particularly. Mt
Hays report was as follows:
"Thero was no director present
from British Columbia last yeur, and
we did not grasp the opportunity of
using some of the money thnt was
set aside for work in our province. J
believe British Columbia was allowed a certain amount of money but
nobody took it up, and I do not think
it was ever made use nf. The only
work carried on in British Columbia
lust year was in connection with Pig
Clubs, ami thoy ha\te been going
strong for the last two years right
through the province, with very goo/i
results. The pig clubs in British Columbia are, for the most part, made
up of Berkshire breeders, and if we
competed with other provinces where
Yorkshires and Tamworths are used
we would not make n very good
showing. The work we hove been
doing has created a great deal of interest especially in the Kamloops
district. In the district where I come
from, the Kootenay district, the
Yorkshires are most popular. We
had a very good show there last yeur
anil practically every boy und girl in
the district was into the pig club
work and from un ediiciitionul standpoint it was very satisfactory. The
question in British Columbin is not
ie of marketing hogs, but of infusing our supply. Only a short
time ugo I read tn a report that we
had sent into British Columbia $1,-
9,909 worth of bog products and
it will take some lime before we enn
produce sufficient to supply our own
province. I nm sorry thnt I hnve
not a more interesting report to give
you hut hope we will hnve one for
next yeur/'
Among the resolutions passed was
one authorizing the payment of $2
per member to each province, from
the .fund of the association. Another proposnl was for the provision
of the registration of farm or herd
names to be used as a prefix only
on registration certificates, the cost
of such registration to be $1.00.
Another move authorized was the
formation of separate bodies, within
the national body, for the furtherance of the Yorkshire breeders within thn national association, for whose
benefit will revert pnrt of the surplus
funds. Other breeds may also be
organized along similar lines.

Tuesday evening an interesting
demonstration was given at the Kootenay Garage Hy Mr Miller, of the
Chevrolet Motor Co., when before a
fairly large audience he showed first
by presentation of the actual parts
anil sorondly by stereopticon illustrations the ninny new features which
cause the manufacturers of the Chev-
i<t>Ict to11 call' their Wr this jtfear Uhc
"New Chevrolet."
Mr.- Miller, to the interested automobile owners present pointed out
one after another the salient features
wherein the new design differed
from the old, admitting where the
old one was subject to criticism, and
where it hnd heen remedied in the
Starting with tho cooling system
he showed where utility and appearance had been combined to produce
the fine uppearing und effective radiator of the new Chevrolet.
Point by point wns taken up and
the listeners were asked to compare
the pnrt or feature presented, with
that of any other car thnt they might
be considering purchasing. He elai
mod thnt the more they compared
the Chevrolet with nny other car the
more they would be convinced that
for value the Chevrolet could not be
quailed. In connection with many
of the features embodied in the new
Chevrolet, Mr. Miller pointed out
that they actually constituted talking points in the sale of many highest
priced cars.
The more important fentures
brought out by Mr. Miller were the
special graphite composition, dry
plate clutch which required no lubrication, the now rear axle, (banjo
type), with its greatly strengthened
gears and secure mounting on third
member, thc improved worm gear
semi-reversible steering mechanism,
the many improvements on the Chevrolet motor, already famous for its
power, endurance nnd economy, as
well ns tho strong, deep frame with
its five sturdy cross members.
In connection with the closed bodies, he pointed out that they were
all Fisher made, with the new one-
piece V. windshield and the wonderful new Duco finish in beautiful colors.
The price of repair parts was a
big point In the purchase of any car,
and he drew attention to the low prices charged for many of the more
important parts thnt sometimes needed replacing.
He considered that all these points
shouted that the Chevrolet was a
first quality car nnd it wos only
through the tremendous production
facilities of the Chevrolet, and the
unlimited resources of the General
Motors, that- it was possible to sell
such a enr at so low a price.
Lantern views of the vnrious parts
shown and views of the vnrious models turned out by the Chevrolet
were given, following the actual demonstration of the parts.

To the best of our knowledge there had never been
a 3-inch motor capable of producing 68 horsepower, a speed of 70 miles an hour, with gasoline
economy safely over 24 miles to the gallon, until
the Chrvsler Six arrived on the market last year.
There is no other today.
That is what scientific engineering in the way of perfected gasdistribution.specia! combustion chambers
and heat distribution does for the Chrysler Six.
There has never before been a motor in which all
sense of vibration has been so completely eliminated, never before a car in whicli side-sway and,,,
road-weaving are absent, never before a car with-,j}'
ait overall length of 160 inches that afforded so much
usable space—generously roomy for five large adults.
Examples might be cited by the score. But you ean see
for yourself how utterly different the Chrysler Six is
and why the eager public bought more than 32,000
Chrysler cars the first year, if you drive the car but a
few minutes. We are anxious to give you a Chrysler

western stairs, including Alaska, Hritish Columbia's
of Arizona, Utah and Montana. Hut whereas these
output was only exceeded by tin-: -threat producers
slates showed a total decrease of two and a half per
cut. last year, ihe Hritish Columbia output was increased hy not less than twenty-six per cent. Only
three of the western mining states increased production last year and not one of these by more than
seven per cent. In the others there were decreases
ranging down to sixteen per cent. The favored
position of B.C. is therefore made apparent. What
the East Kootenay has to do with this likewise becomes clear when it is stated that about one third
of the mineral output of this province arises from
thc activity of the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Company, whose mining operations practically
centre around Kimberley.

Among the many systems used, and the many methods in vogue for the detection of offenders against the
laws of the land, that which is called "stool pigeon"
methods seems the most despicable which could he conceived. Nol, perhaps, so much the idea, but the manner
in which tliis is sometimes carried out is fur from com-
mondablo. Instead of being used to apprehend offenders
it is frequently used to cause men who hove no desire
or intention of violating regulations, to do so out of
friendship or goodfellownhip.
A vase in point happened recently, and while we hold
no brief for the offender, and while he mny not be en-
ini'ly blameless, we do feel that the method in the end
used, and the manner in which it wus carried out is a
rather sad commentary on our method of bringing of-
fenders against the laws to justice. If our information
ll correct, there was, in this imstnnce absolutely no desire to dispense liquor. The money which was offered in
payment (no charge was either asked for or expected),
was refused. Yet, because of the fact that the men in
question walked out of a man's private apartment and
left the money behind them, it was construed ns having
been payment for liquor. Thus it appears that instead of
a man having been caught illegally dispensing liquor;
instead of it having been proven that there was a deBirc
or an intention of making money out of its sale; it was
clearly shown that those who acted In the capneity of
"slool pigeons" practically forced this man to violate

So long as these officials confine themselves to
securing evidence in the ordinary way, and are able to
catch a man freely and of his own accord selling liquor,
with thc idea of securing revenue from such sale, then
their existence, though not to be highly commended,
might he tolerated; but when they go to the lengths
which seem to have been the case In the incident to
whicli we refer, then wo feel that any right-minded citizen, whether in f^vor of liquor or not, will resent Uio
utilizing of methods of this kind which tend to make

Considerable interest was manifested in the city on the arrival on
Friday afternoon last of the gasoline
car which the C. P, R. is placing in
service on one of its West Kootenay
branches. The car was held at
Calgary for a while for some repair
the car came on to this city under
its own power. It is a roomy vehicle
holding forty-four people, thirty-four
in the main compartment and ten in
the smoking room
Some members of the board of
trade had been cherishing the hope
that the C. P. K. would be induced
to make a trial trip with the new car
to Kimberley. hut .this could not be
arranged, and on Saturday the car
left for Nelson. Mr. McFadden
master mechanic, of Nelson wus in
charge of the car.
The hope is still being expressed
that a little later on thc C. P. R. will
give the matter of the train connections between this city and Kimberley more consideration, and it is
thought that the performance of the i
gas car on different branches will be
watched, so that an intelligent idea
of its possibilities can be formed.

Old Timer There Gives Story
Of   Unfolding   Of
Wealth   There
(Prom the Spokane Mining Truth)
In a year'a time, Kimberley, B.C.,
has tripled in population, and is now
die most important mining camp in
British Columbia, according to Richard Marsh, a Spokane mining man,
who recently returned from Khuber-
Ile is building a business block
in Kimberley.
"Kimberley is certainly n busy
lace now," said Mr. Mursh. "The
Consolidated Mining & .Smelting Co.
ii now employing 1100 men in operating the Sullivan mine and the concentrating plant. To house the increase in pupulalion scores of dwelling houses nro building. One con-
trnctor, alone, informed me tlmt lie
had contracts lo build 50 houses.
Kcnomble* Koiilatid in 1895
"While 1 was in Kimberley a new
motion picture theatre, first class in
every respect, opened its doors. Kimberley is now about the same size
as Rossland in the boom days of 1805
and, in many respects, resembles tbe
Rossland of the good, old days.
'This spring,   from   all   reports,
.'{,000 tons of ore dally, while crude
lead and zinc ores are being shipped
direct to the Bunker Hill, Anaconda
and Trail plants. From the concentrating plant 12,000 tons of concentrates are shipped each week to
Trail. In the mine, immense ore
reserves are blocked out and the
Con-solidated by development work
are constantly adding to reserves.
Recently, in diamond drilling, an ore
body 400 feet wide was encountered."
Mr. Marsh stated that the prosperity of Kimberley was helping other towns in the district and thnt
Cranbrook especially was very lively.
The rise of Kimberley as a mining
camp is due solely to the efforts of
the Consolidated Mining & .Smelting
Co, of Canada. Ltd. In 1011 the
Consolidated Mining & Smelting Co.
bought the Sullivan mine from the
Fort Steele Mining & Smelting Co.,
for a repot'tod consideration of some
$40,000, The Sullivan, even then

{From the Vernon News)
Very general regret was expressed
during the past week when it was
learned that some very important
changes were being considered in
connection with the Forestry Department of the province. For some
time Vernon has been looked upon
as a centre from which considerable
work was done, and from which much
of the supervision was carried out.
It appears that this is now to be
changed, and that Nelson will now
be considered to be the headquarters
of this department.
While there may be good grounds
for such a change, and while it may
be justified on the part of the government, it does seem strange that
with every facility in Vernon us to
office room, locntion, etc., that such
drastic changes should suddenly be
considered necessary. It not only
breaks up a well co-ordinated system
of office management, but causes
the breaking up of several homes,
some of the families owning their
own homes in this city. Thus, unless
there has been good cause for such
action, the wisdom of it may well
be questioned.
It appears, however, that this
chango hus been decided on, atid that
arrangements have been practically
completed for carrying it out at un
early date.

going on in ihe district around Kimberley than ever before. Mnny Cranbrook people are planning on starting1
work on properties in the district,
There is now about a foot of snow
in Kimberley, but it is melting fast,
According lo Mr. Marsh the most
ambitious development program in
the Kimberley district now is the
work on the Stemwinder and North
Star groups, which are under option
to the Anglo-Canadian Gold Fields
Co. of South Africa.
On these properties, four diamond
drill outfits are now operating," said
Mr. Marsh. "On the Stemwinder
group the shaft is now down 100 ft.,
with the last forty in good commercial ore of the same character as the
Sullivan; zinc, lead, iron and silver.
It is the general opinion around Kimberley that the Stemwinder and
North Star groups will become producers of the first magnitude.''
Sullivan,  Largoat  in  World
In speaking of the Sullivan mine,
tho most important of the Consolidated^ proprties in British Columbia, Mr. Marsh snid:
"The Sullivan is the largest silver
lead-zinc mine in the world. The
Sullivan    concentrator   is   handling
every effort to make a mine out of **********

OnP« it White Elephunt
An earlier company nfter
spending thousands of dollars bull-
ling a smelter and experiment ing,
was unable to work out a satisfactory
method to handle the mixed lead,
zinc ami iron ores. Then the mine
was sold to ihe Consolidated, It was
nernllj   considered   a   "white   elephant" because of the refractor
ture of the ores.
Oflleiuls of the Consolidated, however, wero not discouraged by the
failures of former operators to make
the Sullivan a paying mine. They
were positive some method could be
worked out to handle the immense
ore bodies successfully.
By constant experimenting a way
of handling the refractory ores was
found, which has placet) the Sullivan
among th" leading producers and dividend payers on the North American continent.
Discovery of the flotation system
of concentrating refractory ores and
the perfecting of the electrolytic
method of handling zinc concentrates having a high iron content, have^
played no small part in mnking the
Sullivan operations successful. |
The success of the Consolidated I
company with the Sullivan mine, af-'
ter other operators had failed, is
typical of the majority of the great
mines of the Northwest.
The Hunker Hill mine wns condemned by experts when it wns in
its early stages, yet the Bunker Hill
company refused to quit and, finally, were rewarded for their persistence.

Fernie Now In Alberta?
Severe criticism of the imperial
mineral resources bureau is made by
Premier Greenfield, of Alberto, in a
recent letter of the London Times.
He quotes from a work of reference
on empire fuel in which the statistics have largely been supplied by
the bureau. Many striking innrenra-
cies, including the geographical error of assuming Pernio to he in Alberta instead of British Columbia
are mnde,
"The compiler hus evidently relied largely on a report published
in 1913," writes Mr, Greenfield,
"and many of the mistakes can he
traced to this old report. Laek of
space has compelled him to omit
much of the information given there
but he has shown an uncanny ability
to retain mintakes and add others.
The series is described as n buslneil
man's survey of empire resources,'
prepared by the Federation of Hritish Industries, but I hope no business
man will place any reliance oil the
references to Alberta's coal. I think
the publisher should withdraw this

On the intermediate hockey lineup, Father Ehmunn has been an effective player nnd never considered

Father Ehmann goes to Fernie the

The following is the first portioning,   irrigating  the   cultivated   land|»£• *M*'^>T&^^
of an interesting account of life in
the East Kootenay district forty
years ago. It is written by George
Hope Johnson well known pioneer
of thiii district nnd wns one of the
addresses given at a recent meeting
of the Calgary Historical Society.
I do not belivo that there is anyone alive today who knows more intimately than I the conditions prevailing in East Kootenay in 1883
and 188-1, or who had a closer personal acquaintance with the men
wlm lived there during those, early
During the first ten months of my
stay in the district I crossed the main
chain of the Rockies three times,
onco by the Crow, coming in: once
by the .Sinclair Pass, going to Calgary and returning, ami in the early
spring of 1884 going out by the Kicking Horse Pass over the pack trail
from Golden to Field.
The wagon road had been completed from Laggan to that point in the
fall of 18811. In the summer of
! S84 1 mnde a trip with a saddle and
pack horse from Golden to the Kootenay river, near the point where
it comes back into Canadian territory
after swinging south into the States.
I went from that point by bark
canoe fifty miles down the river to
the mouth, and fifty up the luke to
Pilot Hay, where the customs house
had been established with Mr. Rykert in charge. I stayed there about
three weeks, crossing und re-crossing
the lake aud down to the present
site of Nelson. Yes, I think I knew
the  Kootenay Valley in   I883-J884.
I first saw East Kootenay in the
summer of 1883, going iu through
the Crow's Nest Pass in the month of
July with Hon. F. W. Aylmer, whom
I had known in Manitoba in 18H0, He
had assured me. that there was a bri-
tiant opening for cattle raising in thc
Columbia Valley, which explain.** my
readiness to accompany him. This
came to nothing. Whore there are
now thousands of men from Michel,
down Elk river, up the Kootenay and
down the Columbia to Golden, there
were in the winter of 1888-84 about
25 men and three white women.
In the late '4-0s there was a gold
rush to Kootenay and thousands of
prospectors swarmed all over the district. Large placer mines were
Worked on Wild Horse creek. Bull
river. Perry and Findlny creeks, and
other streams, and large quantities
of the precious metal were taken
out. Wild Horse creek must have
been a bustling place in those days,
The office of the gold commisswner,
other provincal buildings and large
stores were located there. When
I arrived considerable work was still
being done, principally by Chinamen
who brought water from a private
company which hnd constructed a
largo ditch and flume, the intake being several miles up the creek. Much
of the work was done in rewnshing
gravel which, in forma- years, had
been treated by cruder methods, and
1 was informed thnt the Orientals
still made very trooi( wanes, and
something to spare afler all expenses
of operation were paid.
When 1 reached the place Wm.
Fornlo, tho discoverer and locator of
the coal scums at the place which
afterward received its rvnme from the
locator, was mining recorder, justice
of the peace, peace officer and ad-
iudicator on all questions relating to
mining. He was an Englishman who
hnd been, from his early youth, a
prospector |n many western mining
camps. He was well educated and
more than competent to hold down
such a position. Owing to a change
in the political colour of the local
house Fernie was dismissed shortly
after 1 came and replaced by a man
pained Kelly, who was as ignorant
and inefficent as liis predecessor
was competent. Kelly held his position for only six or eight months, und
was succeeded by Arthur W. Vowell
Afterward superintendent of Indian
affairs in Ihe province, with .headquarters nl Victoria. Mr. Vowell,
came to British Columbia in. 1802
and had experience in every branch
of the government service. Hu waa
an Irish gentleman nf the old school
with whom no liberties could be
taken but who dcult out even-handed
justice to all. A storekeeper, whose
nnme 1 hnve forgotten, Dave and
Mrs. Griffiths, nnd a roustabout, called Tommy Driscnll were m all the
white people in Wild Horse Creek
during thnt winter.
Dave Griffth was an original
genius. A prospector by profession
he was an amateur blacksmith and
dentist (he extracted the wrong tooth
perfectly sound, from the mouth of
the writer later on in the same winter), was one of thc owners of tho
mining diteh, thc revenue from which
gave him a reasonable livelihood,
and had never seen a railway until
he was taken to Golden by J, H.
Woods and Tom McVittie in the
summer of ] Kurt.

The following letter has been received at thr* office of the Kimberley Press, with reference from Dr.
J. H. King, Ottawa.

Ottawa. Feb. 21, 1025
Dear Sir:
I desire to thank you for sending
tne n copy of your first publication,
Which I havo read with a greal deal
of interest and enjoyment.
As nn old-timer in the Kootenny,
you will appreciate my satisfaction
in having Been the Sullivan Mine nnd
the town of Kimberley developed to
ihe point where a newspaper enterprise can succeed in that community.
I well remember my first trip to
Kimberley.   It was buck in '00.   At
that time the "Sullivan" was more or
Less of a prospect, small developments
were being carried on and nnd un-1
fortunate accident occurred in which j
several miners were blown up in nn
explosion.    1   ro le  horseback   from.
Crnnbrook to Kimberley, the injur-j
ed men having been  brought down
thc hill to that po!nt.   We spout the
night there and thc next morning to- (
ted one of the    injured men   on   nl
stretcher  some  four  or   five   miles j
down to what was then known ns the
Big Hill at Marysville.      There we
took a team of horses and nn express wagon ami one of the patients
waa  transferred  to  thu  St  Eugene
Hospital,  then  the  Mission.    Those
were not the days of motor cars or
motor ambulances, and our poor patient had a rather rougb journey to
the hospital.    However, he mado ■
pood rcovcry,
Since then I huve made many trips
to Kimherley for professional nnd
other reasons, and have watched
from year to year its growth and development. Thfl mine is now considered probably one of the largest
zinc nnd lead producers in the world,
containing tremendous bodies of or
which, if no other discovery were
made, would guarantoo to the town
of Kimberley a much longer lease of
life than the usual mining town, and
1 think we enn look forward to seeing developed at Kimberley nn ideal
mining community.
It is with great satisfaction thnt I
view the establishment of a modern
newspaper in Kimberley, and one devoted to the advancement of a community, which, although as yet in its
infancy, has gained n fame fnr beyond the confines of the Dominion,
nnd hns attained a position in thc
udustrlul life of Canada which makes it almost imperative that such a
publication bc undertaken, and once
undertaken, loyally supported by all
citizens who nre proud to he known
as residents of your proRrcssive locality.
With my kindest regards and best
wishes, I remain.
