TO PREPARE DATA
ON EAST KOOTENAY
EMPLOYMENT OUTLOOK
With abundant energy and influence at their command, it has come
to be expected that anything the Kotary Club pubs its hand to will go
through to a successful conclusion.
To judge by the opening night, the
playground carnival, representing tbe
latest Kotary effort to raise funds
for community service, will likely be
recorded as their biggest aad most
successful project. A vast amount
of preliminary organization work was
necessary in order to bring a big undertaking of this kind to a successful
head, and the result is a tribute to the
ability of the Rotarians to work together for a common goal.
A big crowd was on hand for the
opening evening on Wednesday, and
entered into the spirit of the car
val to such an extent that the close of
the tlay showed the Rotarians had taken in something like a thousand dollars. The wheels of fortune were
kept spinning merrily, and many had
the satisfaction of taking away from
the booths some of the substantial
prizes put up. These consisted of
merchandise of every conceivable description—groceries, aluminumware,
kewpie doll lamps, candy, dry goods
nnd clothing anil a host of other
attractive things that made, the
chances all the more alluring, and increased the satisfaction of those fortunate enough to win them. The Rotarians in charge of the booths plied
their new vocations lustily and just
as to the manner born, and with marked success.
The entertninment features of the
carnival were not lost sight of, there
being music constantly from the
Home Town Band, interspersed with
songs and individual numbers from
others. A contingent of entertainers from Lumberton, consisting of
Messrs. Jacobson. Dwelley and others
were responsible for n great deal of
the success of the first evening's entertainment. The band did its part
also, and its music helped a great
deal towards providing the proper atmosphere for the occasion. Mrs. F.
M. MacPherson ably assisted with her
accompaniments on the piano.
In addition to the booths containing the wheels of fortune, thore were
contests for throwing at various objects which cnlled for a straight eye
and arm, including the hydraulic
balls and the glass squares, the prizes
for which were on the same substantial scale as at the other booths. Additional entertainment is provided in
thc dancing floor erected in the open
air, for which the band provides the
music for the alfresco dancing, a feature attracting a good deal of patronage.
The side show called the Wild
Horse Gulch attracted a lot of attention. Here were to be seen all sorts
of reminders of Uu- early days in the
noted mining camp, where millions in
gold were washed out. Among Other
things of interest shown iti a frame
aud behind glass wr.s a copy of the
first issue of the Fort Steele Prospector, dated November 9th, tRi>fi.
This was loaned by Mrs. Charlie Levitt, of Fort Steele. Uesidc it wns the
obi Smith Premier typewriter upon
which the publisher, Mr. Grace, got
out the first edition. Another
table showed a lot of old relics of
various descriptions. Including a hydraulic hose, tin1 fabric still in a wonderful state of preservation. This
had a ropework covering to protect it
from the stones and gravel. The cost
of this was sai I t.. have been $18.00
a foot and was bought in California.
There were many samples nf minerals, gold nuggets from Wild Horse,
loaned by W. A. Drayton, as well as
samples of gold from Weaver Creek,
loaned by Steve Negloski. Proving also attractive was a collection of Wild
Horse guns, the property of the late
(ieo. Hogarth, and loaned by Mrs.
Hogarth. Wooden tombstones, miners' rockers and screens, ami an old
handmade wash board were among
the many other things to be seen.
It was expected on Thursday to get
the merry-go-round in action for the
kiddies, antl if the threatening dampness holds off long enough there is
no doubt tbe carnival will continue
its successful course.
Other entertainments nre to be
staged on thc evenings of thc carnival. This evening there is to be a
hand concert by thc united Cranbrook
nnd Kimberley bands, and the Gyros
are putting on some boxing bouts
that promise well. These will consist
of two preliminaries, and a three
round exhibition. Friday will see
the crowning of the carnival queen,
and on Saturday will come the grand
finale.
Those who were in o^I
the evening service at I■'. x Presbyterian church, as well rv others wb
came after the services at the other
churches were over, bad the'pleasure
of listening lu an organ recital which
will linger for a long time among
their pleasant memories. Under the
master hand of Prof, C. P. Nidd,
formerly of ('ranbrook, tbe new organ at the Presbyterian church was
beard to distinct advantage, and
many were the complimentary remarks heard with respect to the merits of the organ which was but recently the gift of the ladies of the
congregation to the church. Before
the conclusion of the program, the
pastor, Rev. K. W. MacKay, thanked
Prof. Ntdd for the pleasure he had
given them through his playing, as
well as the assistance thut he had
given in conducting thc musical part
of the services during the day,
Prof. Nidd, who was formerly organist in the Methudirt church here,
is with Mrs. Nidd a Cranbrook visitor
for a few weeks at the home of bis
wife's parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. Chester. Prof. Nidd is now a resident of
Moose Jaw, where he is organist at
Zion church.
Ib is understood that before leaving
the city, the congregation of thc
Methodist church will be favored with
a recital by Mr. Nidd, while the hope
has been expressed that he will be
heard again at Knox church.
The program, which was of a varied nature, and all very much appreciated, was as follows:
"Sabbath Evening Chimes"
Dr. Stewart
"0, Star of Eve"   Wagner
"Tocata in A"   Blakeley

EASTERN TEACHERS

WEEK ON TOUR
Wednesday evening the baseball
game between the Fernie Intermediates nnd the Cranbrook Victorias was
a victory for the Cranbrook boys. Up
to the end of the seventh innings it
was n very good exhibition of hall,
Some good hitting by the Vies, combined with a few errors by the visiters put the local boys three ahead..
Fernie trying desperately to score, j
but Woodman was either too good
for the batters or the Cranbrook fielders wero right on their toes and allowed nothing to get past them. In
the eighth innings the Vies indulged
in a swatfest, ten men coming t<> bat '
in this innings, six runs being added to the score, which ended 12 tl

Doran made nn efficient umpire. j
The teams were as follows:

time ago it was given out thut they
would go from here to the Windermere, nnd thence by car to Banff over
the new road, joining their train
again there, but confirmation of this
has not been seen.
The board of trade may take the
matter up, and it is thought if their

time to properly advertise it, tin* at-
tendance was not as large ns tho
sponsors of tho dance would have
liked to havo soon, nor as large as nn
affair of such a worth; nature would
warrant. Howovor, what was lacking
in quantity was more than mado up
in quality, so all wore satisfied. Those
who woro in attendance speak volumes for the excellence of tho music
put up hy tho Robinson orchestra.
Tho boys of tho G.W.V.A. hail soon
to it that thc hall was decorated
suitably for thc occasion, bunting
and flags.covering the walls and being festooned front tho celling.
A very pleasant "extra" as it were,
was the singing of the Princess, while
her dancing, for which she has already acquired quite a reputation,
captured thc hearts uf mutiy, to say
nothing of the pocketbooks that wore
opened up to purchase more tickets
for a princess possessed of such accomplishments.
Mr. Dwelley was also a very pleasing contributor to the program, his
songs as usual being highly entertaining.
Excellent refreshments were served during the intermission.
HIKER VISITS CITY ON
EARLY STAGES OF TRIP
An Interesting visitor to Crnnbrook
this week was Walter Plath, n young
man of about twenty-one summers,
who reached the cily on Sundny and
registered at the camp grounds. Plath
is on a tour of the world but is not
out to break any records, even the
SO day time of Jules Verne not being
aimed at, as be expects it to take him
ten years to do the stunt. Plath,
wlu.se home is West Allis, Wis., left
Milwaukee ou July 12th, with a forty
pound pack of necessities on his back,
1100.00 in his pocket aad a letter
from Mayor Holbcrt Miller of West
Allis. While most of the journey
will be on foot, Plath will not he averse to accepting auto rides when offered, but will uot ask for them.
From Milwaukee, he went to Duluth
uml from there to Canada and reached Cranbrook via Calgary and Windermere. To support himself he accepts any work thnt offers, being an
expert hosiery knitter. While in thin
city he attended the Gyro dance on
Tuesday evening and expected to
leave for the coast in a day or so,
From Seattle a bout trip will take
him to the South Sea Islands and
Australia after which he will visit
Europe and Africa, returning home
across the Atlantic. Plath is a young
fellow of pleasing personality, who is
not afraid to work to accomplish the
aim which he hns in view.
Since writing the above it has been
learned that thc itinerary of the special train of ten cars, bearing 185
members of the Canadian Teachers
Federation will arrive at Kootenay

Coming Events
The position of Premier Oliver as
! head of the Liberal government at
t Victoria became very much more dif-
i lieult with the definite announcement
made last Saturday that Mr. W. J.
Bowser, leader of the Conservative
party in the province, had definitely
decided not to seek re-election to the
house after his recent defeat in Vancouver. This closed the way to any
possible acclamation for Mr. Oliver in
any seat ia which he may seek reelection, and dispelled any possibility
there might have been for the reentry of the two defeated leaders into
the house by reciprocated acclamations.
At a meeting last Saturday of the
Conservative members-elect, held at
Vancouver, R. H. Pooley, veteran
member for Fsquimalt, waa elected
the interim house leader for the coming session, though this does not affect the question of the leadership of
tbe party in general for the province.
Mr. Bowser has made it clear that he
will still work actively with the party,
but will devote himself to his private
business affairs in Vancouver. A
general party convention will probably be held before very long to settle the question of the leadership of
the party.
Rumor continues to connect the
name of the premier with the Nelson
seat if he decides to seek re-election.
The seat has been tendered to him by
Kenneth Campbell, thc sitting member, and this has been acquiesced to
by the executive of the party there.
The premier has replied gratefully to
the offer, but early ia the week had
not definitely committed himself to a
contest. This leads opinion at the
coast to the opinion that premier Oliver's decision to remain in politics is
not at all unanimously seconded by
party supporters, there being a feeling thut having met the same fate as
Mr. Bowser, he should retire in the
same graceful fashion. The situation
at Xelson is being clo&c-iy canvassed,
and if the opposition forces there
are able to unite behind a single
candidate, there is no doubt that
Honest John will again find himself without a seat after the votes
are counted. Mr. Pooley has made
the announcement that it had been
decided to contest any by-election
which might be opened by the government, which means that any opening for the premier or for the finance
minister he has to appoint soon will
see a contest.
This situation, along with the fact
that the last has not yet been heard
of the absentee voting at Vancouver
and North Vancouver, shows that the
political situation is.far from quieting down.

opinion of Louis D. Huntoon, New
York mining engineer, and a former
professor of mining and metallurgy
Yale University. Canada is now
third, Africa ranking first. However,
according to Mr. Huntoon, Canada's
output is increasing rapidly while in
the United States since 1916 there
has been a rapid decline. Among
the provinces British Columbia ranks
first, the Canadian Yukon second and
Ontario third. "Few appreciate,
says Mr, Huntoon, "the importance of
the recent gold discoveries in Onta
rio, the present output from that province, and the exploration and development work that are in progress in
both Ontario and Quebec in search
of, and opening up, new deposits."
He also pointed out that it waB a remarkable fact iu regard to these recently developed gold fields that they
can be reached by C.N. trains within

playground carnival was a ■ :i*. i u.
cess from every angle. With a number of the Gyro organization away on
their holidays, the near approach of
the carnival Itself and the prevailing
heat, some had been a little dubious
of the success of the venture.
The Gyros and their friends were
not slow in catching tbe carnival spir-
it. With the walls of the hall decor-
ated with the Gyro's adopted colors,
purple and gold, illuminated kewpie
dolls fronting the stage and hundreds
of balloons hanging from the ceiling,
and the dancers bedecked in all sorts
of fanciful creations for hats, the atmosphere was laden with merriment.
With two Gyros among their number,
Robinson's orchestra seemed to excel
themselves in respect to the quality
of the music that they rendered, all
of which was much appreciated.
At about 12 o'clock Mr. T. Flett,
president of the Cranbrook Rotarians.
iu a few will chosen words introduced tbe princesses that were the contestants for the honor .tf Queen of
the coming carnival. He complimented the Gyros on the efforts that they
were putting forth to assure a good
time and was pleased to note that
evidences of the pleasure given were
everywhere so manifest. Upon being
introduced, loud cheers were given
for the four young ladies who are
candidates for the hiph honor of ruler
of the carnival. Soon after midnight
cafeteria lunch was served on the
Stage, Alex Hurry being in charge of
this important part of the evening's
enjoyment. The hearts of all fluttered again when Gyro Robinson announced that he had four other princesses to introduce, and these were
presented in the following order.
Princess "Froth" from the brewery:
l'lii.c.-s-* "Chops" from -p. Bums;
t'rincess "I'reme de Mehth
the vendors and Princess "Chow
Chow" from One Lung's restaurant
These charming princesses shorn of
their feathers were Gyrus Bert -Sang.
Austin .McDowell. McDougall Hogge
and Fred Burgess. They created a
hearty laugh. The Gyros then gave
two of their songs while the princes-
aes were on display. Following the
introduction of the princesses the
balloons were loosened from the ceiling and were eagerly chased by the
merry dancers.
During the intermission Mrs. F.
M. MacPherson kindly furnished the
music. Gyro I. It. McXaughton joined her in rendering a piano duet.
Dancing whs kept up till about three
a.m.
As a result of the dance the playground carnival committee fund will
be enhapced by about $100, which
will come through the purchase of a
block of tickets by the Gyros for
their princess "Cheerio."
Clarence Lougheed, of Calgary,
governor of Gyro International District No. 8, who was on his way to
Nelson, stopped over in Cranbrook to
visit the local club and was an interested spectator at the dance.

Golf seems to have caught on ut
Kimberley as quite a number were
seen on the course at Marysville during the past few weeks. Most of
the players are beginners but with
practice may open the eyes of our
Cranbrook friends next yeur. Great
credit and thanks are due our esteemed citizen, Mr. E. G. Montgomery,
who planned and laid out the course.
It is a five hole course, situated at
Marysvllle and one of the most charming spots around Kimberley, and it
is to be hoped that lovers of the ancient game will avail themselves of
the opportunity and pay a visit to the
I course. No subscription is necesiary
j this season, but next yenr a club will
' be formed.
Additional plant has been installed
, and the mine is working at high pressure. An average of 400 tons of
zinc concentrates is being shipped

MAY ESTABLISH
BUS ROUTE OVER
GRAND CIRCLE TOUR
An American firm, with considerable capital behind the proposition, is
planning to place a fleet of ten passenger White busses on the grand circle tour of the west's greatest scenic
attractions early next summer, when
t will be possible to leave Calgary
jr any other point along the line and
motor over the entire course of 4,008
miles or any selected portion thereof,
booking offices being established at
all the principle cities along the line.
The route lies from Calgary to
Banff, then over the BantT-Winder-
mere highway and along the blue
trail to Cranbrook. crossing the international boundary at Kingsgate, passing through Bonners Ferry, Sand
Point antl Spokane, then south and
west to Pendleton nlong the Columbia
river, and passing The Dalles to Portland, where the Pacific Coast High'
way will be followed through Crater
Lake Park, Grant's Pass and on to
Sacramento, Oakland, San Jose, Paso
Rubles, Santa Barbara, Pasndena,
I.os Angeles, San Bernadino to Gotf,
where tin1 trail again swings north to
l.os Vegas, then through Grand Can
yon Pnrk, from which place the Grand
iyon motor road is followed to
Salt Lake City Ogden, ldnho Fulls,
through the 'Yellowstone National
k then on to Butte, Helena and
Greal Kails, then passing through
Glacier Park, skirting Waterton Lakes
park, to McLeod nud then to Calgary.
It is planned to run the motor busnen
n schedule time nnd to give the best
f service.
An unusual opportunity
tors to manifest their faith
ture of the district, and their confidence in the big undertakings that
lire helping to develop tin- East Koot
enay, is afforded in the offer of ;i
siuull purl of the issue of the East
Kootenny Power Company to the public, This is the concern tliat has undertaken to develop the power possibilities at Elko, ami taken over the
B.C. nnd Alberta Power Co., with
their plant at Bull Rivor. Besides
supplying power to Cranbrook and
some of the other towns in the district, it ulso provides current for the
coal mines in the Crow's Nest, though
its prime industrial mission is to ensure a continuous and dependable
power supply for the operation of the
Sullivan Mine and Concentrator, This
implies of course that the company
hus strong connections back of it, and
intending investors would do well to
get acquainted with the term* and
returns which ure offered.
Df. 1'. E. Doolittie of Toronto, pre
sfdent of the Canadian Automobih
Association, who is making a journey
from const to const studying conditions ns he finds them, arrived here
hist night. From here he has gone to
Cranbrook and will proceed via Koot-
enay Landing to Nelson, thence on to
Vancouver, Arrived there, he hopes
to return to Toronto by rail, und in
September will journey buck, pick up
bis car and motor home by one of the
trade routes through the United Stall--. While here he gave u most enlightening und entertaining talk to
the members of the district board of
trade.

AI.l. FOR Tl IF. KIDDIES
For the past week nr so events for the benefit
of the kiddies have held the center of the stage in
this city. This week they are again very much ill the
limelight, being al the heart of tlie big evcnl planned
and executed by the Rotary Club, with the co-operation of other bodies having thc spirit of public service and community welfare. When a body of men
will give themselves so wholeheartedly, and with
no inconsiderable sacrifice of time, energy aud means
to such a cause, it is worth while io stop aud examine
just what the impelling motive is.
The child of the present age is not a whit worse
than his father was a generation ago, in spite of the
fact that some folk profess to wonder "what the
children today arc coming to." The real wonder is
that they are not a heap worse than their forbears,
when thc conditions which surround them are considered. It is a cold-blooded fact that il is the parents who have changed. They have sei up a faster
pace in life, and forgetful of the old adage of the tree
growing as the twig is inclined, the fathers and mothers commence lo lament when they see tlu-ir children straining to get in step along with them. The
day of the automobile is here, and speed, exhilaration
and action is thc cry.
Consequently, any move that is calculated to
help tread down the artificialities that have come
into the twentieth century child's life, and get down
again to thc real things that are going to count in
life, is commendable, and organized play is surely
one of the greatest mediums for doing it. There-
arc two things a child loves to do above all else ; play
and sing. If for any reason these two impulses are
crowded out of a child's life the suppressed energy
will inevitably find outlet in some other channel that
isn't always as harmless. This is just as inevitable
as thc children themselves.
And having through their goodhcartcdness provided means for the children of the city to have a
playground in the park, it is not likely that the sponsors of the playground will leave a good job only half
done. Thc logical follow-up is to see that the children who mosl need it are the ones who gel lhe fullest
Use of it.
THF PREMIER WOOS NELSON
With the prospect of a by-election in Xelson in
an effort to seat thc Premier, already rumblings arc
being heard as to pre-election promises affecting
that riding. In a previous by-election there lhe N'el-
son-Ymir road played an important part in the campaign, The road, of course, cannot be rebuilt now,
but there are report- that the citizens are being
buoyed up with some sorl of whispering iu advance
that thc road will be paved aud thus made a greater
attraction. It i- also rumored thai a bridge to connect with the hinterland in thai vicinity is under
contemplation, and that the governmenl feels lhat
these two works have become a prime necessity.
The educational requirements of Nelson and the
interior it is reported are being seen through different eyes, and a normal school long desired by the
residents of the interior cily is being considered.   It the Liberal cump.—High River Times

NOTE AND COMMENT
Not at all deterred by the fact thai Cranbrook
at one time essayed to provide a swimming pool ior
its children; nor hy the discouragement of a haul*:
failure swallowing up the major part oi the funds
gathered up during a series of years, lhe people of
Fernie are determined to build an open-air swimming pool for their city. A site ha- been offered for
the project, and plans are in course of preparation.
The expectation is that by next year il will he in
operation. The movement in Cranbrook has taken a
slightly different direction, but after all, thc important thing is that something is being done in both
places, and towards the same all-important cud.
Thc provincial police are sounding Ihe doom ol
the automobile speeder in this district, and they
will have the endorsement of all sensible minded
people iu attaining their end. If the motor-hog who
likes to burn up the road was only endangering his
own life and property, he would not be molested,
hut as usual when personal liberty is overdone, more
often than not sonic other person has to suffer. So
il i- wiih the fast driver. Sooner or later he come-
to grief, bringing others into trouble as well.

SECESSION FROM THE PROGRESSIVE RANKS
There is a serious split in thu Projrrcssivi! ranks at
Ottawa. A Beetlon including Miss McPhall ami mast af
the Alberto members object tn being docilely led by Messrs. Porko ami Crorar into tlie Liberal ranks. Tliey have
notified Mr. Korku lhat they will no longer attend the
Progressive caucus. The marvel is that they Bubmitted bo
tamely so long, Mr. Koike has maile it plain enough that
his chief concern i.s to help the government. The Whip
f the party is a man who in I St lit asked permission liy
telegraph to attend the Liberal convention at Ottawa. Mr.
Crerar's predilection! are well known for he has made little effort to veil them. Moreover, his interests clash with
those of the Alberto Progressives who waul n wheat pool.
The war is on between him and Henry Wise Wood who is
a greater force with western Progressives thnn Crerar,
Koike or both. The success, even the existonoe, of the
Progressiva party is bound up in aloofness from the two
old parties. There is a future for Crerar and Koike, ami
perhaps Johnston in the Liberal party, hut no such future
is ussured for most of those whom they would lead into

Back in 1884, when Glouct-ster,

and twine manufacturers and followers of the sen thero was born
in their midst one Harry Allen.
His father and grandfather had
been fishermen, his mother and
grandmother makers of sails. His
father was drowned the day he waa
born, his mother died Kivi"K him

him. He was sent to a Kinder-
garden when seven and run away
when he was tin. When eleven he

sailing vessel. The hardships of

well balanced but bitter. He had
managed to save from scant earnings $211, and with it he opened a
small general store in a Gloucester
side street. A year later u rival
burned him out. Allen ferreted out
the incendiary, whipped him within
an inch of his life and then rode
him out of town on a broomstick.
Three years' toil in a glue factory,
where he slept and also ate his
meals followed, and then Allen
opened a grocery store with thu
$570 he had saved. His campaign
of personally soliciting trade
brought results and his became the
leading grocery, coal and wood, and
accessory store in the town. Ten

known as Hurry Allen & Co, When

CROW'S NEST PASS
TOWNS FEEL CLOSE OF
COAL STRIKE NEAR
(From the Coleman Journal)
About town there are this week,
as during previous weeks, several rumors regarding the miners' strike and
the probable resumption of work,
()ne rumor says that the miners
are likely in be working about August IBlh, But with several people
there appears to be some doubt
about the mines being reopened by
lhe end of next week.
Tlu- Journal, however, is in possession of information which comes
from fairly reliable und very important circles that the strike will be
settled by the end of August. This
news was given this newspaper liy
parlies who do not think it proper,
because of the position they hold, to
have their names appear in print as
giving out a stntement of this kind
until the union and the operators
have first informed the public in nu
official way. But the Journal can assure its nailers that this is tlie most
hopeful piece of information given
out this siniimer so far.
On the oiher hand, word from Cal-
ga'y is nol so hopeful.
While a joint conference was arranged b\ lion. Jaw. Murdock, minister of lobor, between the operators
ami miners' 'ollicials, whicli took
place on Tuesday, there seemed very
little likelihood that the meeting
would result in any agreement being
reached.     At least, this was the im-
preston gained after Interviewing
some of lhc operators and district
officials, The whole situation was reviewed by both with the minister
present al the meeting in order that
he might have u clear personal under
standing uf the actual deadlock.
Neither the operators or men's
officials were in any sense hopeful
that : uhing would come of the

crop prospects are on the whole very
satisfactory, judging from preliminary reports received by the Dominion
Department of Agriculture. The
strawberry crop in the Fraser Valley
is lighter than last year, hut prices
are good. The raspberry crop, which
is estimated at 75 per cent, of lust
year's very heavy crop, is considered
good und the present rainy weather
iu the Fraser Valley, it is thought,
will increase the percentage. The

Recently an official repr
the Dominion governmenl i
Hritish Columbia with an order in
his pocket for 125 pieces of squared
Limber of unique strength and record
dimension, to fill un extraordinary
engineering specification.
To give some idea of the size of
these timbers the total board measure
of the 126 pieces approaches one mil-'
lion feet. They must also be without
defect.
A search of their limits for trees
to produce these huge sticks will be
made by prominent H.C. logging firms
and there is no doubt but that the
"goods" will be found, and delivered.
The incident illustrates the wonderful quality of Hritish Columbia's
timber stand. Only the Douglas fir
area of the Pacific Coast could fill an
order for timbers of such strength,
size and soundness.
Coatly   Equipment
At the same time, only the costly
modem equipment installed by tbe
loggers will enable the logs for this
order to be yarded and transported
from the woods, and only the up-to
the-minute machinery of the manufacturer will permit their sawing and
squaring to the required dimension.
Millions upon millions of dollars
have been sunk in the equipment
necessary to handle the harvest of H.
C.'s timber crop, und millions more in
the machinery for its conversion into
finished timber. But for this industrial investment, not only the official
from Ottawa, but the buyers of the
world, would ask in vain for the de- i %
livery of the big timbers from tho 4
forests of British Columbia. \*

lnvermere, B.C., August 13 — The
residents of the Luke Windermere
district were honored by an extended
visit from their excellencies Baron
Byng of Vimy and Lady Byng. who
arrived in a special train from the
south on Friday evening and remained here until the early hours of Monday morning, when they went north.
The official train comprising the
vice-regal cars Cornwall and York,
with other cars having their excellencies and suite on board pulled into
the Lake Windermere depot aboul
nine o'clock in the evening. The train
was in charge of returned men chiefly, being Conductor C. Lindsay, Engineer Carlyle, Fireman Bolt and
Trainmen Dnodson and Mcintosh.
Superintendent Flett of this division,
district master mechanic Ironsides,
resident engineer Robertson aud telegraph superintendent John Tait of
Nelson, were present as special representatives of the Canadian Pacific
Railway,
As soon as the train had come to a
standstill their excellencies appeared
upon the platform and were met by
a guard of honor from the Great War
Veterans und others, who at different
times hud fought on the hot sands of
Africa and in Flanders. The Lake
Windermere Boy Scouts were also on
parade under Scoutmaster Rev. F. B.
Atkinson. The Great War Veterans
on pnrnde were under command of
their president, Mr. Frank Richardson of Athalmer. Amongst the veterans present und on parade were

To each of these in his turn Baron
Byng spoke personally and learned
from them the regiments in which
they had served or the part they had
tuken. While his excellency was engaged with the veterans, her excellency was devoting her attention to the
Boy Scouts who stood rigidly to attention. One pretty feature of this
time was the presentation to her ex
cellency by little Juliet Vachon of a
bouquet of locally grown flowers. The
review of the guard of honor and a
social chat ended thc official proced-
ings for the day.
Saturduy was a busy day for all.

These pictures were not taken when the West was wild

a little town in Alberta with a population of about two
thousand rather quiet souls, celebrated its Jubilee.
Fifty years ago a sauadton of the Royal Northwest
Mounted Police camped on the site, made it their headquarters, and it was for many years the centre of tlie
Western zone of law and order. Fifty years. In thut
time MacLeod has grown up into a flourishing little
prairie town, and created a wealth of traditions.
On July first, practically all those who remain of the
original members of the scarlet and gold gatherer! in
MacLeod, drawing with them seventeen thousand
visitors from all over the American Continent. The
small cow-town awakened over nl^ht to the business of u
city of holiday makers. The Jubilee Stampede was on.
Special trains of sleeping cars crowded every available
foot of trackage in tne Canadian Pacific yarda. Three

Scores of cow boys, veteran mounties and visitors

The bottom is dropping out of the
revenue all right. When the government first announced its tariff changes in the budget speech, Hon. J. A.
Robb expressed the view that they
would mean a total loss of $24,000,-
000. During the course of tbe session some other changes were made
so thnt finally the acting minister of
finance thought thnt the loss might
total between $25,000,000 aud $20,-
(100.ItOU for the year. The loss in
customs revenue he pluced at one and
a quarter millions.
The budget speech was made one
week after the opening of tho new
fiscal year and it Is found tlmt the
loss in revenue during the first four
months has been actually $20,000,000
on customs and excise. Tbat is lo
say. Mr. Robb has lost during this
time about fi.ur-lil'lhs of the total
amount he thought he would loso during the Whole twelve months.
If the loss in revenue continues at
the rate'tbat has been maintained
during the fiirst four months of the
fiscal year, instead of losing twenty-
five or twenty-six million dollars, the
government will lose $00,000,000 In
customs and excise. There is no
doubt about this. The returns speak
for themselves.
Tbe customs collections supply a
nood example of how far out Mr.
Robb was in his estimating. Ile expected that the loss might be $1,226,-
000 for the year. During the first
four months it wns actually $4,781,-
000, or nearly four times what he
though it ittight be for the whole 12.
If the rnte of loss during these four
months is maintained, the loss instead
of being $1,225,000 for the year,
will be over 514,000,000. Of course,
it is impossible to say just what will
happen, but it is now known that in
less than six months the government
will lose as much in revenue as it expected to lose during the whole of the
year.
This is nil example of scientific
tariff-making as practised by the
Liberal government, and careful adjusting of taxation. There never was
a worse example of hit-and-miss financing. If the government hail merely shut its eyes and slashed the revenue with a knife it could hardly have
done worse. And it is under such
conditions that husiness is expected
ot prosper.
The situation would not be so had
if expenditure were being reduced in
like manner. But it is not. As a
matter of fact it is higher than it wns
during the first four months of the
last fiscal yenr. With rapidly declining revenues on one hand, and higher expenditure on the other—where
will the country land?
In the budget speech the governmenl assured the country that stringent economy would be practised, and
as an evidence of this it said, "Look
at the .estimates, they call for an expenditure of only $400,000,000 this
year, as against $446,000,000 last
year." hut there was an additional
$U,iiO0,00U in the supplenientaries,
then $20,000,000 for branch lines,
nearly $14,000,000 for a bridge and
a viaduct in Toronto ami .Montreal,
ami $6,000,000 for Vancouver harbor, lu other words, the government
secured the authorization not of
$400,000,000, but of an expenditure
of $440,000,000.

I     They nre loud in Iheir praises of
j the natural beauty of the plnee und
lhe courteous treatment they receive.
The camp is part of a 1T..U00 acre

W. Bartman, formerly of Port Burwell. Ontario, assisted by the writer
at lhe camp end of it.
The swimming pool is. of course,
the chief attraction, It is built of
cement nnd is 40 feet wide, GO feet
long und from :> to 7 feet deep. The
water is quite warm, being 90 decrees at the opening of lhe flume and

R. E. BEATTIE PREDICTS
BIG GRAIN MOVEMENT
BY WAY OF COAST
Already Increase of Over 300
per cent. Over Last Year's
Wheat Tonnage
The great strides that the port of
Vancouver is making were referred to in tbe course of au interview
with the Calgary Herald last week,
by It. E. Beattie, one of the members
of the board of harbor commissioners
who was in lhat cily on a business visit. Mr, Beattie proceeded on to the
Coast direct, not making a cull here,
where his daughters have been visiting
This time last year, he said Ihey
had Storage for one and a quarter
million bushels of grain, when Ibe
present crop was ready they would
have Btol'Qge for four million bushels,
Lust year at this time they had three
loading berths, by Januury 1st, li&Xt,
they WOllld have ten loading berths.
In the shipping season 1022-28, the
million ami a quarter elevator handled 16,000,000 bushels of wheat, for
lhe 1!>2:)-1>4 season up to July 1st,
they had handled 63,000,000 bushels.
Mr. Beattie in (he course of the
interview made it very plain that
Vancouver could handle this season
ull the wheat that wns offered from
Alberta and Southern Saskatchewan.
At a conservative estimate they could
handle  125,000,000 bushels, he said.
lu reply to a question regarding
the recent inquiry that was held nt
Vancouver and Calgary by the Board
of Grain Commissioners, Mr. Beattie
said that thc harbor board wns not
takiiifi- any part in the creation of
new inspection divisions, or new
names for wheat or anything of that
kind. "We arc leaving that entirely
to the grain trade," he said. "We are
interested solely in the physical handling of grain nt the cheapest possible
rate to the farmer." Vancouver, he
said nt the present time was tbe cheapest ocean port on the American continent for tho farmer to ship grain
direct from his field to un oceangoing
steamer.
In connection with the develop'
ment of the western route, so far as
enstbound traffic from tho coast was
concerned, Mr. Beattie said thnt Vancouver would eventually be the distributing point for the prairie provinces.
Regarding business to the Orient,
Mr. Beattie said this was increasing
every year, und lhat this wns going to
be a wonderful thing for western
Canada. People there, he said, were
eating much more wheat now. The
United States were decreasing their
exports every year, and that would
benefit Canada, because in a few
years they would be selling wheat to
them.
"As far as the board is concerned,"
saiil Mr. Beattie, "all we want to do
is to jrivc service nt the lowest possible cost." Incidentally he mentioned
thnt he hml heen fnrmiug in Alberta
for the lust seventeen years und still
hud u 700-acre farm there. He was
not only personally interested in
Vancouver, but also in Alberta nnd
the farming industry of thc province.
Mr. Beattie mentioned that n film
was being prepared to take in farming scenes in Alberta, and mining,
lumbering fishing and in fact all industries tributary lo the port of Vancouver, together with general views
of Vancouver. This would be shown
ut the picture theatres of the prairie
provinces, and would he releused in
about ten days' time. It hud tnken,
he snid, more than n year to make the
film.

/-vnc hundred and seventy-five years ago. Colonel
U the Honorable Edward Cornwallis, twin-brother
of thc gay Archbishop of Canterbury, and unci.' to
Lord Cornwallis who surrendered to Washington at
Yorktown, sailed His Majesty's ship "Sphinx," followed by her tall, wooden sisters, "Merry Jacks,"
"Pail Lady" and eleven more, into what is to-day
Halifax harbor, lt was esteemed a great fleet for
those long ago days and the voyage across the Atlantic took many weeks. Halifax is to-day a thriving,
modern city and a great port, hut she forgets not
the brave Englishmen who laid thu firm foundations
on which she is builded.
The first fortnight of August will witness a carnival celebration in honor of Halifax's 175th birthday.
A replica of the "Sphinx" will snil into the harbor
and the landing of Cornwallis nnd his crew will be
re-enacted at some spot along thc shores of I'oint
Pleasant Park. It is impossible lo anchor where
the original "Sphinx" did, as a mass of piers belonging to a great oil Industry now covers that part of
the harbor.
Clad in the picturesque costume of 1749, tht im
Vrmnatnr of the founder of Halifax will step ashore
with his entourage and, joined by the waiting throng,
proceed to some pretty glade in the Park or to the
grounds of Dalhousie University. There a pantomime of laying the foundation of what proved to
he a Citadel City and a fortress for Britain's establishment on this continent, will take place. Indians
and French in old-time dress will be In evidence.
Many entertainments are planned for the carnival
weeks; yacht races, regattas, horse races, athletic
contests and military tattoos are some of them. Thc
carnival will coincide with the visit of the British
worhl-sijuadron of warships, and also th* finish of
nn International yncht race with 17 entries from New
Kochelle, N.Y., to Halifax. The Northwest Arm will
provide boating and bathing and delightful nooks for
picnics along its pretty shore. The unveiling of
the "Cross of Sncrifice,'' a fine memorial tn honor
of thc Nova Scotiuns who died at sea during the
World War, will occur on the headlands of Point
Pleasant Park.

Many persons have come lo us complaining of having
rheumatism in their feci and legs. After examination it was found

will remove the aching.
Come and get the free advice anyway.
