Wage Board
Meeting Here
Informal   Conference   With
Lumber Companies On
Friday Last
The members of tho Minimum
Wage Board were in the city last
Friday gathering information on the
working of the act which the government proposes to put into force
shortly. The legislation haa already
been passed and it is left with the
board to discover what it is felt
would be an equitable minimum
wage to establish throughout the province when the measure will come
into force. The lumber industry is
the first to be affected. The members of the Board who visited this
city were J. D. McNiven, chairman,
who is also the Deputy Minister of
Labor and F. V. Foster who is the
representative of organized labor on
the Board. The third member, Mr.
Patterson, of Vancouver, who is the
representative of the lumber operative was not with his colleagues on
this occasion. This is the same board
that visited the city last year in
connection with the enactment of
the eight hour act.
Meats Lumber Operators
On Friday night the Cranbrook
Hotel, members of the Board met
some of the representatives of the
lumber companies in this district at
an informal conference, the object
being, Mr. McNiven stated to thc
Herald, to ascertain what the prevail-
Ing rates of wages at present paid in
tbe lumber business are and to get
their attitude in regard to the
proposed law as well as to receive
suggestions as to what they thought
the minimum wage should be fixed.
Among those attending the conference were H. B. Cornell, manager
of the Columbia River Lumber Company, Golden; II. P. Klinestiver,
manager of B. C. Spruce Mills, Lumberton; C. D. McN'ahb, Baker Lumber Company, Waldo; Mr. Simpson,
of the Crows Nest Pass Lumber Co.,
Wardner; K. L. Staples, of the Otis
Staples Lumber Co., Wycliffe, B.C.;
and I. R. Poole, of Nelson, secretary
of the Mountain Lumbermen's Association, was also present at the conference. It is stated that the viewpoint of the lumber companies quite
generally expressed was that the time
was not opportune for any drastic
increase in the rates of wages being paid, considering husiness conditions as they are at present, particularly affecting the demand for lumber
in the prairie markets and elsewhere.
Returnini   to   Co»it
On Saturday morning Mr. Foster
left for Golden in company with Mr.
Cornell intending to return to the
coast by way of the main line. On
the return of Mr. McNiven to the
coast a further session will be held
with the lumber men of the coast
district   before   a   final   decision   is

The Salvation Army is once more. ,
making its annual appeal known as !
the "Self-Denial Effort" This up-j
peal was begun when the Army was!
a very small organization fighting!
its way against terrible odds. Through !
its success largely, the Army is In-
day one of the greatest social and
missionary organizations in existence.j
Its work of love is carried on in
eighty-one countries and COionreT^ftlJ
round the world. This work of love
consists in: preaching the gospel
(wherein fifty-eight languages ore
employed), caring for the outcast
who has fallen by the wayside of life,;
feeding the hungry, and in short, ]
lending a helping hand to all who:
struggle, going to the rescue of the
weakest first, regardless of nationality or creed.
In the non-Christian lands there
are over 3,800 Salvation Army mis-1
sionary officers working. These all I
report a steady progress against
heathenism and sin.
This year the Army is making its
greatest appeal, but is confident that
the people of Westtr^ .Canada will
respond goneroushjLthereby enabling
thut organization to continue its work
which is recognized by al!*aj^neces-
The local officers are intending to
make May 2nd to 22nd as tho Self-

Miss Frances E. Mara, provlncli
commissioner of the Girl Guides, pai
a visit to the local patrols on Thursday last, inspecting the Guides in
thoir uniforms and*addressing the
members of the Association of Mo
thers in  the evening.
Miss Mara, wbilst not finding absolute perfection in the Cranbrook
patrols, praised them for their drill
work, their appearance and tbe spirit
and interest they evinced. Their
general proficiency and readiness in
games and tests was tbe subject of
repeated favorable continent.
In spite of the loss of the Guide
captain, and the removal of mnny
senior members by the exactions ttf
high school and other duties, the interest and enthusiasm of the Guides
have been maintained. Under the
leadership of Miss MeCaslin, acting
captain, assisted by Miss Delia Baxter und Miss Clandinin, a Guide captain of considerable experience at the
Coast, the Guides have progressed in
their work and play, both of which
go into the making of better citizens
of our girls, just as the work and play
of the Scouts makes better citizen.-;
of the hoys.
Owing to being under-officered,
Miss McGoslin has been unable to
accede to the many requests for admittance into the company, Imi it
has heen decided to open a waiting
list in the hope that another patrol
may he opened  in the near future.
Miss Alara visited Cranbrook, Nelson aud other Guide centres, on route
to a conference of Guide commissioners in Now York City. The Guide
movement in British Columbia is
largely due to hel* untiring efforts and
devotion. She speaks with pride of
the British Columbia companies,
which rank second in Canada In numbers, Ontario, only, being ahead.
The locul girls are very smart in

In addition to these prises a gen-
****** amah eoausMen will reward
all active non-prize winners.    Not all
of the candidates are after the automobile, although this prize certainly
attracts many.    A number of work-
rs have expressed their desire  to
win  one of the lesser awards, while
thers wish   to  woik  for the  cash
ommissions, feeling certain thai they
ean  make big pay.
Unusual  Opportunity
The campaign is one of the topics of

tin Thursday last the Tigers' team,
leaders in the lacrosse league, met
defeat at the hands of the roaring
Lions, by a score of 5-3. The Lions
got ahead in the first two periods,
putting in three goals, and though the
Tigers netted two in the third, the
Lions also got another one, and the
fourth saw another count also added
to their score.
On Saturday afternoon there was
another good game, when the Cubs,
who have been holding down the cellar position hitherto, came back
strong, and trimmed the Lions to the
tune of 0-1. The Cubs got in some
perfect combination work, resulting
in reapeated scoring for them. This
was a fast game all the way through,
and saw some good work by individual players on both teams.
On Monday, the Lions and tho
Cubs met again in a struggle to the
death, resulting in a win for the
Lions, 3-2, after being tied for a
couple   of  periods.
In response to a circular letter sent
out by Mr. Art Wallace to all the
parents and friends of the young lacrosse players that are being raised
in the city through Mr. Wallace's
efforts, there was a good crowd In
attendance at the bnll grounds on
Wednesday night, many of the hoy
fathers ami mothers being there.
They hud the pleasure of seeing their
boys in action. The game was between McFarlane's Tigers and Dixon's Lions, the game going to thfl
latter by the score of 'I to 1.

HE.M-iV FORD says that his business ought to
do better under a reduced tariff, than it lias
previously. There i*-. at least room for doubt in the
way that he qualifies it.   The general manager of
an immense service in providing cheap transportation for the masses, but occasionally he gets off on
a tangent, and even his commanding position in the
automobile world cannot put him right, lie thought
lo end the world war by chartering a ship and seeing
tu il personally, ignoring lhe fact that there were
principles involved thai had lo be settled before hostilities could cease, aud his expedition returned a
failure. He essayed to revolutionize the weekly
newspaper business by taking over a sheet he was
interested in, but the business has not yet responded
tbe same as the automobile field did.
Henry Ford has profited bv the operation of
tlie Canadian tariff, if lhe low-tariff advocates are lo
be believed, and if the auto business stands to profit
miller a lowered tariff, it is a wonder that Henry
Ford's voice has not been heard before, Just at Ibis
lime, it does not seem lo ring altogether true

NOW that the Canadian National Railways are
being brought within measurable distance of
paying their way, it is surprising how many supporters the system is getting among thc politicians,
especially on the government side. A few years
ago when Hon. Arthur Meighen took the first
steps towards stopping the immense drain on the
country, he was roundly criticised for attempting
to salvage anything out of the wreck as the railway
situation was then. It was hopeless, his opponents
said, and the proposal was advanced boldly, to band
tbe lines over to anyone that would take and run
them. Thc first steps taken hy Mr. Meighen at that
time were to amalgamate the various systems, and
place them under the one management, and through
tbis course has been found the way to success for
the lines, with thc result that an operating profit of
thirty million dollars was marked up last year.
Those who have heen in lhe habit of running
down tbe National lines have only to take a trip
through some of thc territory the system serves to
realize that the country needs thc second transcontinental line for development purposes. The fact
that there is now a comfortable margin showing on
the operating side of things is proof enough that
his Canadian plain puts il quite differently, There the government-owned railways are an asset to the
is no alternative, he says, hut lo carry on in face country which is beyond all the politicians' power
of the lowered tariff.    The clear inference is that of peradventure.

In thc case of Chrysler you know

The model number is not the maximum—Chrysler "70" delivers 70
miles per hour and more.
Comparatively few people, it is true,

Political economists state that
mining, next to agriculture, is thc
greatest industry in tbe country
This is true from the viewpoint that
if the soil were untitled there would
be little to ent, and famine would
stalk the land.
Basis of Wealth
From a financial, or monetary
standpoint, however, to say nothing
about relativity,—and every commodity is relative to tho product of the
mines,—the mining Industry is the
greatest in the world. Tbe truth of
this assertion becomes appareni when
it is visualized that mining gives us
the standard of value, by which the
price of almost everything produced
by the brain ami brawn of mnn is
measured. Abandon mining and lite
value of every commodity would bo
insignificant, humanity would sink
back lo the barter and exchange age,
nnd financial paralysis would lock in
its deadly grasp the industries of
mankind, It would ba tho greatest
calamity that ever befell the human
race, nnd in less llian a generation
civilization would revert to barbarism, when primitive man knew nothing about eopuer, gold, silver, iron,
steel, lead, zinc and the invaluable
mineral resources of Mother Earth.
Those who decry mining nre ignorant of history, or they have ulterior purposes to serve. If thoy
know anything they must know that
all business; that all industry; that
all human progress depends on tho
mines. ,
From  Time   Immemorial
The wealth from the mines from
the dawn of time is the epic of the
song and story of human advancement, of man's march along the paths
of progress.
It was the mines that made the
greatness of the past; that made the
ancient civilizations; that made
Egypt great; and made Greece great;
and made Rome great; and in modern
times the mines have made Spain,
and England and the United States
great beyond the dreams of avarice.
Mining is essential to the advancement of mankind, and to the progress of civilization. Mining has
made more poor men millionaires, in
the decades of the ages, than nil
other things put together.
Safe—When   Treated   .Sanely
The government statistics show
there has boen less money lost in
mining than in any other important
business in our country. These records prove that in mining the failures have been less than 35 per cent
as against more than 87 per cent of
failures in other Industries, throughout the United States, during the past
fifty years. *
More real profit has been made
by investments in mining securities
during the past century than from
any other American industry.
Tbe mines have offered tbe rank
and file of investors nn opportunity
to acquire slock ut ridiculously low
prices, many of which subsequently
appreciate in value well ubove the
one hundred dollar mark.
Returni  Real Profit*
Investment statistics show that
profit to investors from mines is
about J Sli per cent—more than six
limes the percentage of any other industry in tbe country, Next to mining comes:
Life Insurance   Ill per cent
Automobiles     lfi per cent
Steel       8 per cent
Railroads 5 V6 per cent
Wipe out the mines and the people
ere long would ngain be living in
caves and mud shacks along thc bunks
of streams, like the river drift men
in  the  dawn  of mankind.
Strike down the rnmer, shackle
mining; throttle the mining industry;
nnd civilization will sink back into
oblivion ten thousand years.
A   Debt   to   the   Proipector
The greatest benefactor of tne human race has been the prospector.
The most beneficient of all times nre
the far-seeing men whose brain and
brawn developed tho earth's natural
resources, the men who poured the
golden stream af wealth into the lap
of civilization; into the channels of
trade; into the avenues of commerce
aud into the house of happiness.
All honor to these Minersl Long
live the Mining Industry!! All hail
tho Prospector!!! In every lund on
which thc sun shines a monument
should be built to the Prospector for
all that he has done in every clime
to bless humanity.

iiiK along for hours and only normal
hands will be dealt and then a puzzling
hand will come up, one tli.it invites discussion and a more or less wide difference of opinion. Aiu-t inn plaj ers everywhere love to talk over hands and the
so-called "post-mortem" is as much a
part of the came as the play and bidding itself. The "unexpected" is really
auction's greatest charm and because
of the infinite number ol hands possible,
this unexpected clement always will tw

players, even in tin* same group or club,
differ so radically in thrir theory of bidding, Such is the case, however, nnd ii

I Recollections of Octogenarian
Reminisce uses   of  John   Fingal Smith, of this city, as
Recorded by  Himself,
"1 wandered  East,  I wandered
But the place I love best
Is the place where I was born."
There is none too much space allotted to go as fully Into the story
of the "Island," so I must cramp
myself us much as possible and give
only a running outline. Its discovery
is claimed by John Cabot in the reign
of Henry VII; Jacques Cartier also
has a claim. No interest was taken
of uny consequence until the Treaty
of Paris in 170;}, and Prince Kdward
Island, us we now call it, was placed
under the government of Nova Scotia. As early us 1780 there was u
desire that the designation Isle St.
John should be abandoned. In February 1st, 1799, the name Prince
Edward Island was given, in honor
of Prince Edward, who afterwards
became Duke of Kent and father of
Queen Victoria, and at the time was
commander-in-chief of tho forces in
North America.
Fires have been as destructive in
earlier periods as they are today. In
173H about lid miles of Kast'Point
was for years a desert. No spot in
North America had such a variety of
forest as Prince Kdward Island. These
days are rapidly passing. As the
island began to Ik- settled a movement tool! plnce to have a government of its own. The first governor
was as early as 17S0, Lieutenant-
Governor Patterson, lie arrived in
August 80th, 1770, Among other
things he was charged "to especial
eare that Almighty Cod should be
devoutly and duly served throughout
his  government."
Early Potato Fame
The governor gave his experience
of the capability of the land, "In
every other part of America where
1 have been grain, in general, deteriorates, especially oats and bur-,
ley." This exactly holds good at thej
present day. "1 never met with or
henrd of such an increase of potatoes
as I was told by Iwo servants belonging to Captain Holland. One of them
planted six bushels, and from them
raised two hundred bushels. And
as to garden atufffl there is no i
try produces better. In shorl
lord, if only the proprietors exert
themselves, this island will, in a short
time, be the garden of North America!!"
The lieutenant-governor next proceeded to the constitution of a House
of Assembly. This was effected on
February 17lh, 1773, an Important
date to remember. At n meeting of
council held thut day it was resolved
"that u House of Representatives or
General Assembly of the inhabitants
of thi.s island be forthwith called."
In a dispatch the lieutenant-governor
informed Lord Dartmouth that the
House was to he chosen by taking
the voices of the whole people collectively, as belonging to one country,
and waiving all kinds of i-juiiliiicu-
tions except tlieir lieing Protestants
und residents (Catholic disability
wus not before 1820), The number
of representatives was limited to
eighteen, as that was about tlie number of inhabitants who could make
a tolerable appearance in tin- House.
The first Assembly met in July
with Robert Stewart as Speaker. At
any rate, scandal mongers were busy
then as now "nd Walter Patterson
returned to England a ruined man.
He wus succeeded by Edmund Fanning. Captain Holland, already mentioned, hnd the island surveyed into
three counties—Kings, (Queens
Prince—ami these sub-divided
sixty-seven lots. There were
parishes, but the designation wa
ufter a time carried out, us was the
lots. Each lot wns altoul twenty-
thousand acres.
Thoie Stirring Timci
These were critical times. The
Deelurntion of Independence was declared by tin' thirteen colonies. This
touched the Inhabitants of I'rince
Edward Island remotely if at nil.
In 177(1 two armed American vessels entered the harbor of Charlotte-
town. They were cruising in the
Clulf to intercept Hritish ordnance
and store ships that might, be on their
way to Quebec, A landing was effected without opposition. The administrator, Phillip Colbeck, the
surveyor-general, Thomas Wright,
and Thomas He BrUay wen* mude
prisoners, and wiih such booty as
could be Seized they were carried off
to New Englund. The raiders reported to Washington] who then lay at
Cambridge in Ids headquarters. Instead   of approving oT   their exploit,
he  dismissed  llu-   principal  officers.
The prisoners were freed, but were
left to make the best of their distressed Ritual ion without any oll'ci
of redress for the injuries tliey had
sustained and the ruin of their families. There nie many accounts of
the incident. Juhn Uussell Spence,
a member of the council, tells how
ho was waiting ut Cumso for a fair
wind to bring him home, lie also was
seized with his wife and servants by
the returning privateers, but they
were released the following day. John
Budd, clerk of the courts, records
the stores thut were canned off,
namely, counter supplies that had
been accumulated for 103 persons
who were expected t,( arrive. After
the return of the prisoners to Halifax, Colbeck spent much time recounting the hardships they had endured, und his letters ure suffused
with bitterness. The marauders hnd
carried off his property to the value
of two thousand pounds sterling;
they offered to cut his wife's throut
merely because her father was u Mr.
Coffin of Boston, who was remarkable
for his attachment to the government. "Those Violators of domestic
felicity left her without a single jfiuss
of -wine, without it candle to burn,
** a sufficiency of provisions; most of
the furniture taken away; und, for
what I  know, her clothes."
What made the ense still harder
to bear was the theft of the lady's
rings und bracelets, which were afterwards seen adorning the "female
connections of these villians."
The following year n ship from
Nachias, Maine, reached us far as
Picton, a merchant ship bending for
Scoll, and wus seized and broughl
into Bail Verte to await convoy. By
a defeat at Port Cumberland the position of the invaders became untenable and the slop was surrendered.
; not
Howe, under command of Major
Hierliky, for the defence of the island, and remained in barracks all
About this time two privateers
landed crews ut St. Peter's, and according to account, sent by Colbeck
to Germaine, "began their accustomed wanton depredutions by shooting
with grape shot at oxen und sheep,
und tuking very few of them away
for use.
In 1779 Knyphansen's Hessiun
regiment was driven by stress of weather into Chnrlottetown, where it remained until the following June, and
some of its members became permanent settlers.
The  Selkirk Colooiati
The immigration that fixed indelibly the character of Prince Edward
Island was the large influx of settlers from Scotland, especially from
thu western islands, who arrived in
the early yeurs of the nineteenth
century. According to the census the
Inhabitants of Scottish descent numbered 41,f>7;l. There were only seventeen Jews, und ull but 908 of the
entire population were of British descent. Lord Selkirk was responsible
for the introduction of the Scottish
immigrants. During the famine in
Ireland in the early 40's, quite a
few came to settle on the Selkirk
estate, just contiguous to the High-j
land settlers, who occupied the district bordering on the sea. The Uni
ted Empire loyalists were also a valuable addition to the population
Prince Edward Island's history
wry interesting with respect to land.
The whole island seemed to have been
gambled by casting lots. Large tracts
were acquired and held on condition
that immigration be encouraged and
settlers brought in. The only land
lord among them all who carried out
the condition was Lord Selkirk, It is
said one section was sold for a keg
of rum. This condition was a great
drawback to settlement. The word,
"quit-rent," was u common one
"Escheat" was another. This confusion caused u good deal of trouble,
and the great question of landlords
hail to be settled, and this und other
matters of historic interest will be
treated in my next article.

and declared that the only thing that
is at present retarding the development of many mining properties is
road transportation.
Mr. Drayton was at Victoria last
week interviewing Hon. William
Sloan, minister of mines, respecting
the improvement of the old roadway
up Toby Creek to give transportation
facilities to the Key mine, which he
is operating. He has a considerable
tonnage of dive-load ore awaiting
provision of transportation to the
smelter. Last season Mr. Drayton installed on thi.s property an aerial
tramline, having at one place a span
of approximately -1000 feet. As soon
as the government has put the old
highway into repair he expects to
put a large force of men to work.
In addition to his interests in thc
Key mine, he is operating a placer
proposition on Wildhor.ie Creek, going over the old ground covered by
the early miners with rocker and pan.
He has had a crew prospecting all
winter with very encouraging results,
encountering some rich ground. This
will be hydraulicked this year.

CHAPTER X—Continued
When Sipkc was revived, he whispered to Bob of what had happened,
whilst watching the faces, measuring
his chance to make away again at thc
first movement, for Spike did not forget even in this moment of repentance nnd service that he was a—
fugitive. "Seen de kid's blond noodle

And that one good hand was pressed now in the strong, grateful hands
of Bob Wilson—a clasp of forgiveness nnd of friendship thnt would

Bob was beginning to discredit tbe
evidence of his ears nnd eyes—it all
seemed such an Incredible turnover
from the nssnilments of Fate ho wns
so accustomed to. Yet—there wns
gainsaying tbe evidence of his
lips, pressod close to Caroline's,
Preparations were underway now
for the return of the Limited to Crater City until such time as tbe Gorge
could be made passable. Bobby, a
little bewildered and a little ill, was
safe in the expert care of a doctor
among the passengers.
Bob had wondered what the attitude of the trainmen toward him
would be; ho was set at ease by their
hearty expressions of gratitude nnd
friendship. Evidently, in their minds,
his former mistake had been overshadowed and expiated by the magnitude of his present achievement.
He waj. nt pence, then, with his comrades; with the world!—nnd, grenteut
mutter of nil—secure in the love of
Caroline. Therefore, he determined
to return to Crater City on the Limited and see everything through to
the happy conclusion that the good
fortune of this moment seemed to
He turned again to look for Spike,
but the tramp had disappeared, fur
lively—hnd slunk off into the refuge
of thc stormbound night.
"Caroline," Bob said, sometime
later when they were seated
drawing room of the Limited, with
Bobby on Caroline's lap, "I want
to tell you the details of the affair
with Jane Gordon—"
Caroline interrupted him with a
gesture of positiveness. "Stop, sir,
—after having seen and known Miss
Gordon for exactly twelve hours
know even better thnn you do whnt
those details were. And I'm not interested in the confessions of a bad
little boy. Spnnking would be the
only fitting punishment for such an
afTair—and I'm afraid you're too big
for me to spank!"
Caroline spoke lightly, but deep
in her heart she knew what tho wholt
affair bad cost this scion of the eoun
try's oldest nnd proudest bluobloods;
what trniling the Inco nnd old Invon
der of aristocracy in tbe gutter of
Philistine chiffon had meant when
realization came to the proud and
sensitive soul of the young man
jlemorse for trafficked pride hnd
driven him forth an outcast and self-
appointed pariah with greater force
than the commission of murder would
hnvo sent the average man skulking
into the shadows and oblivion. She
wondered if he could or would take
her into that setting.
Bob was studying her, and seemed
to surmise her thoughts;
Which name do you like best,"
he asked, "Snobson or Wilson?"
"You will always be—Bob Wilson
■to me," she said, with a little
catch in her voice.
"And I'll always remain Bob Wilson—for you!" he said softly. "I
am on my own. I hnve boen for
five years, nnd I've liked it better
thnn the softness, the pampered case,
of other days. But now I have incentive and freedom for its exercise
I shnll aim for thc highest.
We'll make our own fortune, dear
heart!" *
Thoy wore silent for a little while
over that, for it demanded emphatic
sealing of a sort that mnde speech
rather awkward.
"If the Road will give me another
chance, I'll start up—if they won't,
we'll go elsewhere. I'll ever carry
the thought, though, that I wns responsible—for Jim's death—"
He explained to her the circumstances under which he had run past
thc light.
'Then," she whispered, stoutly
sharing half nnd hnlf with him, "It's
my fault, too, by the same token—
for it was my picture you wtire
looking at!"
Presently she continued, "We were
just puppets in the hands of God,
who wanted to take Jim on, for some
reason. There's no one to blame,
but Him—nnd we enn't presume to
do that!"
Bob mused to himself—nt least
Jim had been saved a lot of pain by
his death, the pnin of unrequited
love, for now Bob knew that Caroline could never have loved Jim.
Presently, Bob began to stop thinking nbout anything—it wns his fault
thnt he had tried to do too much
thinking about everything. He abandoned himself to the serene anchor-
age of his own found love. For their
nrms around one another formed
serene harbors wherein they were
snfe from the strife nnd alarms of
the wide world of the sea outside
the sandbar of their threshold.
"Caroline/1 he asked chuckling ns

What is it, dear?" wns the answer, from his fourth  vest button.
"Whnt the hell difference does

"I'll bite," she snid, shocked.
"It make:* a hell of a difference!"
he exulted, smothering her.

Between football nnd baseball the
sawmill nnd planer are becoming
strong rivals nowadays. On Sunday
afternoon last baseball teams from
each faction met for a game, th*
score of which went to 17-18 in favor
of the' planer. This was ,an exceptional win for the planer when one
considers that the sawmill carries or
the team seven or eight of the regular Wardner ball team, while on the
planer side were only two or three
who professed to call htcmselves renl
player.-, the remainder being niaily
pick-ups for the occasion.    Batterle
for the day were: 11. Anderson and
llickcyfor lite planer, and Dow, Km
brae, S. Thompson nad IL Thomp*
son for the sawmill, t'p until the
fifth Inning the score stood at 8-0
in favor of tbe sawmill. During the
planers' turn ot the bat they finally
found tlu ball and knocked Dow out
f the box. B. Embree next took
the box, but to no avail. During the
next few innings Dame Fortune
inilde on the planer side indeed,
;ich man up knocking the ball for
run every time. Sum Thompson
was next called in to stop the assault
luring the eighth inning, but in spite
of Sam'? speedy ball the game closed
with the planer men decidedly victorious. This took quite n lot of

men, who had been boasting most of

shutout. Although the game did not
run to nny spectacular plays it prov-

CREASE In earnings
hollinger gold
mine output is
shown to be immense
Fabulous values in gold nre being
taken from the Hollinger gold mine
in Northern Ontario, wliich is unquestionably the richest gold mine in
tho world. John Campsall, tlie
nephew of Isaac Campsall, of the
Mission rond, nnd cousin of K. Vav-
nell of the Heruld Stuff, who is connected with the company, sends word
that in 1024 the output of gold from
the Hollinger mine wns $18,433,003
in value which brought the grnnd total of gold production from the Hollinger up to ?K3,954,273. The Dome,
er up to $88,054,278. ' The Dome,
another big producer in the Porcupine Gold camp in Northern Ontario
produced lust yeur $4,307,624 worth
of gold, bringing its total production
up to $20,760,273. The Porcupine
eamp since its establishment in u big
way in DUO down to the year 1024
produced n total of $180^50,187
worth of gold. Wiih ihe Immense
mines in lhe Porcupine dislricl mnking such immense production and fhe
Sullivan and Premier Mines in this
province nlso making records, it is
not to be wondered nt that mining in
Canada is considered to be one of its
richest resources.

Particulars from any
Diit.  Passenger Agent, Calgary
Net operating earnings of $82,-
201,414.70, an increase of $15,020,
153.31 as compared with the preceding year, are shown in the annual
report of the Canadian National Railways covering the year 1025, tabled
in the House of Commons on April
20. This result, tho report states,
"may be regarded as generally satisfactory" and was due to a combination of increased gross earnings an
lecrensed expenses. The report
points out that "from Jnnuary to
June inclusive, the gross enrnir.gs in
1025 were less than for the corresponding months in 1924, and it was
not until the end of October 1925
that the gross revenue overtook the
ligures of 1924," Continuing, thc
report says: "In the face of the de-
crensed business which obtained dur-
the greater part of 1925, every
effort in the direction of economy was
put forth and maintained during the
whole yenr.    The^e effort resulted in
decrease in expenses during the
yonr of $5,637,143.25, or 2.5^
The increase iu the gross revenues
amounted t0 $9,383,020.06, or 3.9<7r
ns compared with 1924. A reduction
in opernting rutio from 92.087c in
1924 to 86.83',; in 1925 wns accomplished.
Commenting upon these results,
Sir Henry W. Thornton, chairman
ind president of the system, states:
'It is also interesting to note thnt
.he net operating earnings were np
proximately equal to 80% of the interest payable to the public on fund-
I debt ns compared with about 45%
in  1924."
The total operating rovenues of
lhe company for 1925 und 1924 were:
1925, $244,971,202.61; 1924, $235,-
588,182.55;  increase,   $9,383,020.00.
The total operating expenses of
the company for 1925 nnd 1924
were: 1925, $212,700,787.82; 1924,
$218,343,951.07; decrease, $5,637,-
Tho net operating earnings of the
company for 1925 and 1924 were:
1925, $82,264,414.79; 1924, $17,244,-

Cranbrook Assembly No. 22, Native Sims of Canada, bus decided
tbat ii useful work can be performed
in fostering Canadianfsm through the
medium ai thfl Junior Lacros.se League which is now organized here, and
baa accordingly decided to donate a
handsome cup and the medals to ac-
conipniiy same for the winning team
in the league. Those have now been
ordered and will shortly be on exhibition. The task of reviving lacrosse ami getting the league into
such an active form has largely been
undertaken by Art Wallace, whose
enthusiasm for tlie game is intense
and who hns given much time to fos-
etrlng it in the district. Due to his
efforts, there are now three teams of
young enthusiasts and keenly contested games take place according to
regular schedules. It has been decided to put a lacrosse game on the
program for the 24th of May, when
Cranbrook and Kimberley teams will
probably clash. Lacrosse is a fast
game to watch and many regrets are
heard that it has apparently been
eclipsed, at least in recent years, by
other summer activities, but in Cranbrook ut least it shows strong signs
of coming back.
An effort is being made to interest more people in tbo game, and
parents havo beon invited to attend
the games which are played. This
would tend to greatly increase the
interest in the matches, and would
snow that efforts being made to foster sport does not go entirely unappreciated.

For the latest magazines nnd pa-

Coast papers told on Monday of
there having been recovered from
l.oon Pake, near Port Haney, a skeleton, which wus found to huve attached to it an artificial leg. By this
means it was identified as being the
remains of Fred Avauehe, who was
drowned in the lake there with a
companion, while fishing, in 1914.
Fred Avauehe was a son of Rev. Mr.
Avauehe, who twenty years ae;o was
a pastor of the Baptist church here,
and at that time Fred, bis eldest son,
was a member of the mechanical stalf
of the Herald, and he will be remembered by many of the older residents
in the city.

to carry out a pretentious decorative
scheme in the city in connection with
the 24th of May celebration bus arrived, and Patmore Bros, expect to
commence this week putting the holes
in the sidewalk which will hold thc
stocks into which the flag poles ure
to be placed. Many merchants in
the cily are co-operating with the
G.W.V.A. in this scheme and it will
mean that the streets will be given
a real gala appearance for the 24th
of May and such other specinl occasions as the decorations are called
for. It is understood that about
forty or fifty merchants in the city
are going in for this scheme of decorating, which will ensure at legst
more flags being used in Cranbrook
for the holiday than has ever been
seen yet.
