TAYLOR LEADS ABSENTEE
The official count of the votea
Which look place on Monthly and
Tuesday last hy A. B. Smith, returning olllcer, revealed the fact that the
absentee vote went slightly in iavor
oi John Taylor, and that the riding
as a whole went strongly in favor of
bct-r hy the glass, in spite of the majority against it that the Cranbrok
city polls registered. As a matter of
fact the absentee vote nearly wiped
out the adverse majority of the city.
In the vote for the candidates in the
absentee ballots the count ran very
closely, and it was not till the close of
the count that the Liberal had any
lead. The absentee count was aa follows:
For Wallinger, Conservative  73
For Taylor, Liberal   84
Absentee majority for Taylor .. 11
Official majority for Wallinger
including absente vote 263
The complete beer plebiscite vote
for the riding is as follows:
Yes
Kimberley Ko. 1      86
Kimberley No. 2   121
Concentrator    40
Kingsgate       13

Cranbrook   581 642
Absentee Vote    97    49
1280J1057
Majority "Yes"    223
Cranbrook, Kingsgate, Marysville
and Mayook were the only points to
give a majority against the beer pro
posals, Lumberton voted even, and
tvery other point went in favor. At
Yahk there were 16 spoiled plebiscite
votes, and a number there were cast
on ballot papers apparently prepared
by the returning officer, written in
pen and ink. and copied in the form of
the printed ballot.
It took a good while to check up
the affidavits of some of the absentee voters who had sworn they were
registered on the Crnnbrook list, or
Kimberley perhaps, and then it
would ultimately be found they were
registered on the list of some other
point in the riding. Others had their
vote disqualified when it was found
that they were not on the list al all,
having apparently been dropped without their knowing it.
Make Motor Trip to Stampede
W. 11. Morris, Herb Harrop, Mat
Forrest and Dan Sawyers of Wycliffe,
were Stampede visitors last week.
They left on Saturday, the 5Ul, and
reached Calgary Sunday, going hy
way of Die Crows Nest and returning
by way of Banff. With the exception df a piece of road from Crows
Nest to a point ten miles cast of
Lundbrecki and a piece between Sinclair and Athalmer, the roads were
all in excellent condition.

A prominent visitor to the Banff-
Wndermere disriet last week was Mr.

years acted in the cupucity of lecturer

as well as other clubs and societies.

of them, and from knowledge gained
and through the use of the camera, a
picture of them will be given to thousands of people through the illustrated pages of the Daily News as well
aa pen pictures and lectures of his
trip.
Mr, Cole, who is often heard from
radio station W.M.A.Q. Chicago Daily
News, will al«o make known to thou
sands of unseen listeners the wonders
of the Canadian Rockies.   In conversation with a Herald representative,
Mr. Cole stated that he was wonderfully impressed with the grandeur of
the Canadian Rockies, and it was of
much interest to learn from him that
Fairmont Sprirgs camp, only seventy
five miles fro n Crnnbrook was the
finest camp o; its nature that he had
as yet seen,   ' hat Mr. Cole is a competent author: y may be judged from

The ministry of Mr. Haynes is be

He speaks without notes in pu

his style is conversational, yet so

He brings to his ministry also a

Constable Saunders of the Provincial
Police force had an experience which
he will  not likely  forget  for some
time.   Having gone to the vicinity of
Harold Street on the report that a
man was disturbing the residents in
that neighborhood, he arrested a man
who  gave his  name  as  Prest,  who
claims to be a native of Truro. N.S.,
who is walking to Vancouver, working as he goes along.   The constable
took the man in his car to the city-
police station and after pulling up at
a point about opposite the steps in
front of the city hall, the car facing
towards the K. P. Hall, he got out on

the prisoner turned on Roberts, who
jumping on the back of the gunman
soon had him on the ground without

been a pretty mess. The man was
taken to the city jail where he was
searched. The revolver was found to
he loaded with five .31! calibre bullets. The prisoner protested that he
would not have shot, that he was only
defending himself. On being informed that he was foolish to carry a gun
like that, and that he might have been
shot at any minute for holding a gun
up to n constable, the man said "I
would rather you had shot me than
to have brought me into a police station." He protested that he waa not
a vagrant, but that he was working
his way from Winnipeg to the coast
obtaining money by doing odd jobs.
He carried a package of sugar of lead
which he said waa for treating poison
ivy infection. He had about fifteen
dollars in cash and about two dozen
extra bullets. On being questioned
as to why he carried a gun, he said,
to protect myself against wild animals in the woods." He carried a
knife, fork and spoon, and said he
cooked for himself and thus saved his
money.

It is hardly necessary at this time
to go into the history of the water
supply system for Cranbrook.
Whal we are dirculy concerned about is how can the people who are
raising crops on the land adjacent to
Joseph Creek get water to irrigate
with during the next three or four
weeks?
Many thousands Of dollars will be
lost by those who depend on irrigation for their crops unless the people
in the city of Cranbrook entirely eli
Inate the waste and unnecessary use
of water that is now going on. It is
j nothing short of criminal under the
present conditions.
We trust thnt next season will find
the Gold Creek water mingled with
the Joseph Creek water which should
mean an ample supply i'or many years
to come.
The mayor und city officials are
alive to the situation and are prcpar
ed to take any necessary measures
that will insure the various licensees
the water to which they are entitled.
A great many people are keeping
strictly within the hours allotted,
that is, to '.i in the evening. However,
a great many tire continuing to waste
water on their lawns, in the house
antl places of business so that it will
probably be necessary for the city to
put on pntrols who will shut off the
water as well as impose a fine on
those who disobey any regulation that
may be necessary to meet the situation.
The time for irrigating lawns
should immediately be reduced to 30
minutes per day and if the hot weather continues it may he necessary

water may be avallabtb for domestic
use.
My position brings me directly in
contact with thow who are cultivating

from those who are suffering for
I want of water.

ADVANCE POLL OK ABSENTEE VOTE?
The counting uf the absentee vote this week has
brought to light some conditions thnt will hnve to
he remedied if people are going to put any confidence
in the results obtained from it. There may he a few
evilly disposed persons who have a desire to subvert
the expressed desire of the majority of the electorate, but tliey constitute a very small minority of
those who act in the capacity of returning officers
or deputies, lint even allowing for the best of intentions there are decisions to be made when the ballots
are being counted that must deprive voters of their
franchise, even when the expressed intention is
clear, because some condition has not been met of
which the voter had absolutely no cognizance.
The case of a voter whose name does not appear
on the list in their home town for some reason instances this. There are a number in Cranbrook who
through absence from the city, or inability to vote
at a previous election through illness or some other
cause, were not on the list when the time came t(
vote this year. Some of them were situated to
vote absentee this year, and in ignorance of the fact
that their names were not registered here, did so.
On checking up here it was found that tlieir names
were not on the list, and the vote was discarded.
Others on election day found that they had been lefl
on the list in a former place of residence as well as
being registered here, and thus disqualified from voting at all. In this case, it is questionable whether
any person in this position who was so disposed,
could not have voted absentee for both ridings, from
different voting points, with but little chance of detection. These difficulties arise from the great
anxiety shown by all political parties to get new
names on the list aud the almost total lack of concern
over taking old names off.
The fact that there are protests being made at
Vancouver and elsewhere indicates there is much
questioning as to the success of the absentee vote
principle. Even in this riding where there is no hint
of anything questionable, the returning officer hit up
against some knotty points, such as the legitimacy
or otherwise of written ballots, when official forms
had apparently given out; torn ballots, and others
marked clearly as to the intention, but not according
to the method prescribed by the act.
Taking it all in all, it would seem that the advance poll as taken in the Dominion elections is a
more successful method of catching some of those
who would otherwise be unable to vote at all. The
principle of the absentee vote, while admirable
theory, docs not seem workable so long as human
nature is what it is, unless it can be bound up in ironclad regulation- considerably sliffer than at present.
Its main purpose a- shown in this election seems V
be as a sort of life-line to those who were only beaten
by a narrow margin on the regular vote by which
they ma\ ultimately be brought to dry laud.
Till-: WATER WAGON TOWN
water lo lo*<*|> them going for a week. Lawns are
ver) nice to look at. and do credit to the property
owner and tin- city, Inu when to keep that lawn to a
certain standard of perfection means that some
rancher i- going to have to du without water fur his
crops, wliich -|h*I1s tin* failure of his season's work,
it take- on a different aspect, Then again leaky taps
and connections arc a frequent cause of heavy loss.
These are carelessl) allowed to leak, only a little at
:i lime perhaps, hut ii there tire found to be two or
three such iu a house, and two or three hundred such
houses, i> there any need to ask where is the water
going? The cily authorities have been lenient in the
matter where many other places would have been
more stringent. In some cities the water would be
turned off when a badly leaky connection was'found,
and would stay off till the owner had it attended to.
It should not be necessary for a city this size to come
to such a pass, but if the dry weather continues, and
the people still look lightly on the situation,
it may be necessary, as the water rights engineer
points out elsewhere, to take such action as will pro
tect the rights of those who arc trying to farm on the
outskirts uf the city, and cannot do so without irri
gation, antl this would involve cutting down the
amount of water allowed the city tu something like
a reasonable quantity, This would seem like a hardship after the extravagance that has heen going on,
but it would not be necessary at all if the water users
within the cily could be made to realize lhe serious
s of the situation.
NOTE AND COMMENT
Investigating commissions seem to be a very
happy way of providing good livings for those who
happen to he appointed to them, but they seem to go
hard with the country's finances, and in the light of
results obtained, some of the commissions appointed
eeni little short of failures. The commission which
visited this city some time ago, for instance, investigating the desirability or otherwise of imposing an
embargo uu the export of pulpwood from the country, had, up to the end uf March last, cost the respec*
table sum of -?4K.000, and has nol yet completed its
labors, which are remunerated at the rate of $35 per
day lur tlie'chairman, and ?2.i per day for the other
members, and living allowances. Another celebrated
commission, that which has been investigating the
grain handling all over the country, has gone considerably betler than this, and has now run up the sum
of .$125,000, and the end is not quite yet. Perhaps
the results justify the expenditures, but the general
public cannot usually see it that way.

It was obvious of course that Crauhrook would
vote against beer by the glass. No town that uses
much water as this city could be expected to vote
anything else. Official records and figures show
that Cranbrook as a city is using about three times as
much water as a generous calculation on a per capita basis would allow. As a result of this continuous
drain on tlie water system, additions to the plant at
considerable expense are necessary, and worse than
that, Others who are depending on the water supply
from which the city also draws ou, are finding there
is none left for them after the thirst of the people of
Cranbrook is allayed, or after tliey have allowed their
taps to run as they think necessary. It is shown there
is enough water coming out of the sewage system to
.supply a small city, so the actual quantity going in
can be conjectured. It may be true tliat much of this
is due to the seepage getting into the sewers, but it
is also true that there is a large preventable waste
arising from many causes, ln some cases lawns are

"DROPPING THE PILOT"
When the campaign was on a great deal was published in the Liberal press about 'dropping the pilot.' The
electors of the province were urged, threatened and cajoled into keeping "Honest John" Oliver as premier. And
the premier himself travelled the province over telling the
people that he was going to be returned. He, however,
challenged them in these words: "Give me a strong working majority in the house or I do not want the job."
The elections came. Oliver was snowed under. He
was OV&rwhelmlngly defeated in the riding he elected to
run in. He asked for the verdict of the electors and got
it. His party, hy less than a third of the total vote cast
mnnaged to pull twenty members out of the wreckage,
with twenty-eight in the opposition and independent.
This ought to be sufficient to convince Premier
Oliver of what the electors think about him and the policy
of his party. Rut has it? Since election day his political
friends und party heelers have been repeating daily the
story of how a seat must he found for the defeated leader.
Giving due credit to Premier Oliver for what he may
have accomplished its Premier, the verdict of the electors
was clearly enough expressed, and if the Liberal leaders
are wise they will accept the verdict and "drop the pilot."
If they cannot find a new one, the electors will.—Okanogan Commoner.
PREMIER SMUTS GOES TOO
The last of the post-wnr premiers is out of offlce. At
the recent elections in South Africa, General Smuts, lea
dcr of the South African party nnd the most distinguished
citizen of his country, was defeated by a combination of
Doer Nationalists and Labor. The new premier is Gen,
Hert/og. The victorious eonlition is united only in opposing Smuts. The Boer Nationalists want South Africa to
secede from the Hritish Empire, hut the Labor party is
not ready for that yet. The defeat of Smuts is generally
attributed to the agricultural depression, to the more or
less widespread unemployment and to the high taxei
misfortunes that have sunt one statesman after another

Every  Hritish Columbian's Duty!

Lumber Industry
■ ■ ■'■'
Every man and woman in British
Columbia should endeavor to realize
what the lumber industries mean to
the community they live in and should
constitute themselves active boosters
of B.C. forest products.
This is one of the readiest ways in
Which they can help the industry that
has put this province on the map and
is busily engaged in keeping it there.
No merchandise, however unique,
can sell itself in these days of substitutes and keen competition. Tht
searching task of finding steady markets for their products is perhaps
the most important the lumbermen of
this province are up against.
Market Expansion
The maintenance of costly sales
forces and far-reaching market extension organizations is a very heavy
charge amounting to millions yearly
on the lumber and allied industries of
British Columbia.
New markets must be found and
old ones preserved, Agents at home
and abroad must he employed in
keeping open the * channels along
whicli B.C. wood products are distributed to consumers in every part of
the world.
In exchange for these millions of
dollar? spent in the marketing of our
forest products the people of British
Columbia receive what really amounts
to their principal means of support.
Every British Columbian should
therefore ask himself or herself how
best they can help out the Industry
that means so much to them.

A dispatch from London, England,
states tnat thi1 Soudan Government,
through Capt. E. C. Midwinter, general mannger of railways find steam-
ers, Soudan, Africa, has accepted a
tender from n British Columbia firm
for 150,000 railway ties nf Douglas
fir. The contract expressly stipulates lhal the railway ties shall be
of Canadian   origin.
Br iti h Columbia's shipment of
water-burnc lumber to overseas markets totalled 521,707,132 board feet
last year, against 273,146,800 in
IU22, an increase of iU per cent.
This announcement was recently
made by the provincial minister of
lain!:- ami it is a remarkable index
of the rapid expansion of the lumber
industry  in  British Columbia,
Under a scheme inaugurated by
the Provincial Government it is announced lhat British Columbia will
advance loans up to $1100 u family
tn settlers from the Hebrides, on
condition that the British Government advance a like amount, lit
view of the present depression in
the islands, it is expected that the
British Government will co-operate.
Keen interosl in all Canadian
manufactures nml especially in
mineral products, wood pulp, textiles, leather and rubber goods, heavy
machinery and farm machinery is
now manifested by France and Belgium, according to H. E. Tessier of
Montreal, who recently accompanied
an exhibit of these manufactures
on a tour through every important
city in these countries. Mr. Testier
believes that the tour will bring
great practical benefit to Canada as
soon as French currency becomes
more  stable.

of immigration from continental
Europe was the message recently
delivered by J. Murray Gibbon,
Canadian author and litterateur, in
an address on "Canadian Literature
and the Foreign-born" given in Montreal recently. Of all the Scandinavian races contributing to the Canadian population, Mr, Gibbon considers the Icelanders to have the highest literary mentality.

NEW PROVINCIAL
LEGISLATURE MEETS
ON OCTOBER 27
The issue nf the British Columbia
Gazette dated June 26th, contains a
proclamation to the effect that the
legislature of the Province of British
Columbia will meet for the despatch
of business on Monday, the twenty-
seventh day of October
During the interval after the counting of the absentee vote there will
be considerable conjecture as to what
is going to happen, and what the personnel of the new government will
be. At any rote there is time between
now and October 27th, for many
things to happen and many changes
to take place.
Hon. J. D. Mac Lean for premier,
Hon. Wm. Sloan for finance, and
Hon. T. D. Patullo for railways—this
is the latest ministerial line-up pro

old-timers of East Kootenay will re
gret to learn that Mr. Baptiste Mori
geau recently had to be taken to the
hospital at Red Deer, where he under
went a serious operation. It is gratifying to learn that despite his 84 odd
years he is making recovery. Mr.
Morigeau was born at the head waters of the Elk River and is possibly
the oldest survivor of the days before
the Kootenay districts were peopled
by white men.

: WOLF MAN" IS
tali: OP LOVE that
FINALLY WON OUT
"Tho Wolf Man," coming to the
Star on Monday nnd Tuesday next, is
a powerful story of romnnco, brim-
full of action.
The Honorable Gerald Stanley,
youngor son of the late Karl of Gir-
ton, waa a perfect gentleman sober
nnd uu imperfoct boast drunk. He
considered this one morning in bed,
following one of his nights of wild
revelry. Like most men of his typo,
the flesh pots were extremely revolting nfter one had sought and found
them.
The Btory of a previous night's
revelry circulated. Before the Honorable Gerald had removed the ice
pack from his throbbing head, the sto
ry hud reached the .shell-pink oars of
Bontrlco Joyce, his finncoo, nnd also,
luiil penetrated llu- less decorative
lobes of her brother, Philip. Whereupon, Philip insisted Hint she break
tho engagement.
Bontrlco relents n temporary lapse
the steps. His head struck on the
stone flagging nnd when they found
htm the youth wns dead.
The tragedy gave Lord Stanley his
Opportunity. Posing as the friend of
his younger brother, he told Gerald
that he had pushed the younger Joyce
nl' affection, a fact which the Honor-1to his death, advised him to leave for
Stanley, lakes with secret but malicious anger. For, actually, Lord Stanley coveted the girl himself,
Tlte Hon. Gerald attended another
party and was persuaded to partake
of champagne. And as usual, he
became a wolf, a beast, and forgot
his family and his name. Philip Joyce
was in the party and openly remonstrated. The incident broke up the
party. It pnrtly sobered the Honorable Gerald, too, for he went away
alone and quietly. Philip, somewhat
the worse followed him, and fell on

Tht- liquor had worn off and the-
Honorable Gerald was himself. Iti
was thus that they were discovered by '■
a searching party, and in the misty
dawn in tlie timber country, Elizabeth
Gordon found Herself caring for this
■nun who had changed so suddenly.
On his side, Gerald realized with
n pnng of regret lhat his was a hopeless love. How could he ask this girl
to tnary him, with the shadmv of the
death penalty hovering over him?
Back In England on his death-bed,
Lord Stanley was confessing to Beatrice his treachery to Gerald.
I It was like Beatrice to seek him out.
She found him with the womtin he
loved. And what she told them op-1 ,
ened the future. They say that the t
Honorable Gerald became a perfect
gentleman after that.

The baseball game played at the
ball park on Wednesday evening between the Concentrator and the Victorias was won by the visitors, the
score being 11 to 5. The game could
hardly be called a good exhibition,
there being too many errors to mar
the plays. Cossack for the Concentrator had the best of the pitching argument. Teaver, the one armed wonder of the Concentrator team played
a great game. Out of five times nt
bat he hit safe four times and was
walked the fifth time, he nlso scored
four runs and fielded his position at
second bnse with but one error. .Tack
Genest when halting in the fifth inning ducked to nvoid the ball but in
backing up he got hit squarely on the
hack of the hrnd with thc ball, which
stunned him for a short period.
