From the Conservative aspect, thc
campaign is now well under way, and
though n quiet confidence exists ns
to the outcome, no effort is to be
spared to co-ordinate things in different parts of thc riding. Organization meetings are now being carried out daily in different parts of
the riding, Monday night at Kimberley, Tuesday ut "Marysville, and these
meetings will be continued throughout the district. Most encouraging
results are bcing encountered, support being forthcoming from the most
unexpected sources.
Last week Dr. Rutledge, the Conservative candidate, was a visitor to
the Fernie end of the riding, and
with him was Major II. R Hicks.
This alone should give the quietus
to the rumor still being assiduously
circulated that there is division in the
party ranks between the supporters
of the two who were considered for
the nomination. Further proof of
this will be seen on the return
Majur lUcks from Montrenl,. when
he will be throwing bis full weight
into the campaign for Or. Itulledgc.
Dr. Tcdmie, of Victoria, the dominion organiser, was a visitor to
the riding this week, arriving on
Wednesday evening and remaining
over till the following day. He discussed campaign arrangements with
those interested and met an enthusiastic meeting of workers in the committee rooms on Wednesday evening.
Pr. Tolmie brings word of many
hopeful indications seen elsewhere,
ami there is every indication tbat the
coast will remain solid Conservative
as at present, though naturally there
is a big onslaught being mado by the

all possible, a change of In

Strong Organization Effected
on Monday Evening
This Week
An enthusiastic meeting of the
Conservative association at Kimberley took place there in the new
Staples building on Monday, for the
purpose of getting the organization
in shape to work during the present
election campaign. The meeting was
very well attended, among those
present being Dr. Rutledge, the party
candidate in tlte riding, and a number of others from Cranbrook.
A. A. Robertson, president of the
Fast Kootenay Conservative association, presided, nnd explained the purpose of the meeting. In outlining
plans for the campaign, Mr. Robertson suggested that for ine sake of
efficiency the entire Kimberley district should be brought under the
one organization.
Officers were elected as follows:
Hon. President....W. R. Ross, K.C.
Hon. Vice-Pres A. A. Ward
President Jos. Bell
Vice-Presidents: F. Willis, Kimberley; Pontus Johnson, Sullivan

Executive—Kimberley, P. H. Pearson, D. Morrison and T. Martin;
Sullivan Hill, W. Glanvllle (and
two others); Concentrator, Messrs.
Kleman, M. Brooke and J. Thompson.
Dr. Rutledge made a brief address
tn the meeting, telling of the splendid
reception he had been given in all
parts of the riding, but stressing the
need for organization, and work on
thc voters' lists. Referring to the
Conservative program, he said that
economy was one principle they
would insist on to a far greater degree in nil departments. He expressed complete confidence in  the
th evening were W. R. Ross, A. A.
Robertson and A. R. Lilly, who all
spoke hopefully of the outcome of
the contest, and promised every assistance. This brought to a close
what was conceded to be a most successful meeting.
Word renched members of the
Forestry branch hero hist Saturday
morning of an accident al Creaton,
by which W. Jas. Jury, forest ranger
in lhe Creston district, received injuries which proved fatal. It was a
motor mishap, the firsl fatality of
its kind recorded in the Creston dislricl. Mr. .lory was almost instantly
killed, and his assistant, Alt'. Calmer,
painfully injured, while James Duncan, thi' third member of tho party,

There is no doubt but that the Fort
Steele Conservative association will
be a real success, as wiH be seen
when the federal elections are over
on October 20th. The meeting was
addressed during the evening by Dr.
RUtledge, the Conservatice candidate,
and 11. H. Herchmes, of Cranbrook,
and Dr. Rutledge was given an ex>
tieimly good reception.

Friday evening last an event of
much import in church circles took
place in Cranbrook when al Knox
Presbyterian Church Rev, M. S.
Blackburn, the choice of the congregation as pastor, wus inducted into the pastorate. A large number
of members and adherents of the
congregation were present on this
ocassion. The induction ceremony
was conducted by Rev. David A.
Smith, who as acting moderator under the authority of the Presbytery
of Westminster, together with A. A.
MacKinnon, representative elder,
represented  the   Presbytery.
Following the opening exercises,
Rev. Mr. Smith gave the induction
Choosing as the subject of his discourse Cor. 1: 27, and John 1:7, 11,
the speaker referred to this ns the
greatest theme in the world, and to
his mind it should be the pivotal
point of every sermon. The only
command which Christ gave to the
church was "Go Ye," o command
which he was afraid was often forgotten. Evidence of our relation to
Christ might be seen often in the
scripture, and some references
were given. He stated that Christ
In a person meant a more perfect
personality. If Christ is given the
right of way, it is but a short time
till he possesses us thoroughly. Of
the two kinds of christians he preferred the warm, friendly kind, to
the one that wns grand, stntely and
Perfection in personality was conducive to perfect service. The
speaker pointed out that ns Christ
came not to be ministered unto but
to minister, so we, if we love Him,
should feed His lambs, nnd as followers should deny ourselves many
things for his sake. The church was
the greatest service club because
Christ was in  it and its members.
Perfect peace was only obtainable
through service in Christ.    Life of

•Anton* the other speaker* daring  h*Mry,*p>i»iy»fcof«lrkimK money
had been tried, and while they all
may thrill, they do not bring happiness. Christ is the only hope of
glory, and it is for us to open the
door and let Him conic in.
The speaker concluded his address
by exhorting his hearers to put
Christianity to the forefront of all
th^ir activities, and pointed out the
great field for the application of
their energies in a missionary way,
and nlso drew their attention to the
power of prayer.
Following the address the formal
questions of examination of tbe minister were made to Mr. Blnckburn,
which being satisfactorily answered
the right hand of fellowship was extended by the moderator.
In addressing the minister and
congregation, Mr. Smith referred to
the honor conferred on Mr, Blackburn in being called, and nt the same
time congratulated the congregation.
He then drew attention to one or
two things that would help in the
working out of the relationship of
the minister and congregation. Principal among these was punctuality—
in paying—in visiting the sick—in
attendance at church and prayer
meetings. If they had n nice thing
to say about their minister they
should not be afraid to say it—if u
grievance, don't harbor it. Other
timely words of advice were given
in conclusion.
Following this meeting n very
pleasant social time was hnd in the
school room of the church, dandy refreshments heing served.
Vancouver Member to Address Meeting in Cranbrook

Tin- first public meeting of the election campaign in the Conservative
Interests will take place on Saturday evening nf this week. September

IT. JI, Stevens, member for Vancouver Centre and former minister of
trade and commerce in tbo Meighen

Rutledge, the Conservative condidute
for'the East Kootenny, Mr. Stevens
is a well-known and fluent speaker,
with a thorough grasp of con-
ditions as they affect British Columbia, and in particular can throw a
great deal of light on the tangled
freight rates situation, which is being
exploited by lhe government as the
great need of the west, but which
has become so surrounded by uncertainty thai the public understanding on the question has become befogged. Mr. Stevens is being opposed in his home seat by G. G. McGeer, the B. C. government freight

Fire at Fort Steele Wednesday
evening totally destroyed the residence of Bias Torrence, better known
ns Mrs. Gold, nt Westport, next to
Jean Blayke's, The cause of the fire
has not yet Iieen learned, but the
building was n total loss. Mrs. Gold
puts her loss at S;j,7t)0, and carried
insurance amounting to about $1,500.
She was able to save only about 100
worth of goods from the place. The
forestry department had one of their
gasoline pumps on the scene of the
fire, but were only able to prevent the
brush close liy from burning, and so
prevented the fire from spreading.

Poor Support for Clean-up
The clean-up of the new park
which the board of trade expected
to be able to speed up by enlisting
the aid of the. service clubs of the
city, did noi materialize on Wednesday afternoon, owing to an apparent
lack of interest. J. P. Fink and .1.
F. Scott were the only two who put
In an appearance, and while they did
a good deal for the time spent, it was
naturally a disappointment that the
aid of more members of the board of
trade and the service clubs could not
be enlisted for such a public spirited
cause. It appears, as Mr. Fink said,
in discussing the matter, there is
plenty of indoor enthusiasm shown
In • matter of this kind, and not
enough ant-door.
The rogular meeting of the Cranbrook District Burns club was held
in tile Maple hall on Friday last, September 17th. and thc following officers were elected fnr the coming
year, commencing in September:
President. I>. Halcrow.
Vice-Presidents, Mrs. J. McCnllum,
A. Strachan.
Sec.-Trear.. W.  Henderson.
Executive, A". P. Noble, C. Emslie, sirs. Jas. MacDonald, s. Mai
cnlm, II. McGIli.
The nights of meeting were
chdnged tn thc llrst Thursday in each
month, anil nrrangomontl were made
to have a little social event on the
1st of October. All old members
will bc notified of the chnnge of
date. Membership cards can be had
from the secretary, Plans for a
social and dance on St. Andrews'
night are also on the table.
It is becoming increasingly difficult to get a clear open date for any
event of an entertainment nature in
tbe city, and the result is that some
programs of an entirely worthy nu-
ture are not receiving the support
they merit, and would get under oth-
■r circumstances. In this class
omc the entertainments which Miss
Theresa Siegel puts on from time to
time, and while on Monday evening
there was a fairly good attendance at
the United church, it was not as
large as had been hoped for. At the
sutne time, there is a sufficiently
lurge muster of Miss Siegel's admirers here to ensure her a good
hearing at any time. Her fairly frequent visits here serve to deepen the
admiration felt for her unique talent
of dramatic interpretation, and her
faculty for assuming the roles of u
number of characters in a story, and
so entering into the spirit of them
that the continuity is never lost for
a moment.
In some ways "Within the Law,"
which was presented on Monday evening, is the most dramatic and appending of the plays Miss Siegel hus
So far presented here. It is an intensely gripping drama, replete with
tense situations, yet not lacking in
humor. Those who have read the
book, or seen the film, will be willing to admit that the presentation
most appealing. Without stage set-
of the story by Miss Siegel is the
ting, or special costuming, and only
slightly abbreviating the story in
order to bring it within the compass
of a single person, Miss Siegel very
vividly told the story of the defeat
and final triumph of the young girl,
who, when thrown in prison through
no misdeed of her own, is harrassed
to such an extent when she attempts
to rehabilitate herself, that she turns
on her persecutors and those who
would harp on her past, and by her
strength of character developed and
tempered in the fires of adversity,
and *'legitimate numblewittcdness,
is able to discomfort them all. '
The evening was rounded out by
a musical program consisting of an
instrumental number by Miss Alma
Sarvis, a vocal duet by Mrs. F. M.
MacPherson and Mrs. J. Norgrove,
and a vocal solo by Mr. Austin McDonald. The entertainment was put
on under the auspices of the Ladles'
Aid of the United church.
On Tuesday evening, Miss Siegel

Rebtkah Service
On Sunday evening last, the Rebekah Lodge observed the 74th annual anniversary of their order by
attending the Bervlce at the Baptist
church. Rev. W. T. Tapscott, the
pastor, conducted the services, and
preached on "Philanthopy," with special references to the nature of the
service. There was not a very large
turnout of members of the lodge,
only about a dozen or so attending in
a body, by no means representative
of thc strength of tht lodge.
Dr. Tolmie Reviews Conservative Stand and Outlook
ior the Election
Dr. Kim to RetmNo* Wook
Dr. S. P. Tolmie, Dominion organizer for the Conservative party,
member in the federal house for Victoria, and member of the Borden
wartime ministry as minister of agriculture, wns a visitor in the city this
week, ucconipanied by Mrs. Tolmie.
They arrived on Wednesday's train
und left the following afternoon for
Fernie hy car, proceeding from there
to  Calgary Thursday  evening.
On Wednesday evening Dr. Tolmie uddressed a meeting of Conservatives in the committee rooms, and
outlined briefly the lines along which
the election is being fought, the is-
ues of the campaign, the principles
for which the Conservatives ure
pledged, particularly as to the tar-
riff, and the election prospects.
Particularly illuminating wus his
exposition of the tariff question, and
the anomalies which the Liberal government has originated tending to
the detriment of the country's trade
relations. He also outlined the
form of organization being striven
for in ench constituency, in order
to get the utmost scope.
As to the outcome of the elections.
Dr. Tolmie showed how the Mari-
times were not likely to give Mackenzie King any added support) when
nil three provinces had broken away
from Liberalism provincially, In
Quebec the re-entry of lion. F.. 1,.
Patenuude into federal politics in
support of Mr. Meighen. and the
support being given also hy Armand
Lavergrne, noted Nationalist, were
events of the utmost importance, and
it was being predicted that twenty
or thirty seats would be won there
by the Conservatives. In Ontarie
the collupse of the Progressive party
and its swing to the Conservatives
does not look like added support for
Maekenzie King. In thepraivie provinces, it was probable with the successful working of the wheat pool
that it would remain mostly Progressive, and the chances ar? that
in the seats that were left there
would be an even break, since the
Liberals now have only two prairie
seats. B. C. looked like remaining
Conservative as it was, and in this
riding he was pleased to see Pr. Rut-
ledge's chances being regarded so
hopefully. Mackenzie King had said
that in the event of his not getting
a clear majority in this election he
would again appeal to the country.
But what hope was there that he
could get a majority at all. Dr. Tolmie asked, in the face uf these conditions?
Dr. Tolmie was received with much
enthusiasm, and Mrs. Tolmie was
welcomed among the ladies particularly. They were accompanied to
Fernie by Dr. .1. W. Rutledge, and
a meeting was to be held there on
Thursday at f>.30.

Specimens Now On View
The mining specimen case completed recently outside the post office
wns filled tlii- week with samples by
W. S. Santo, from mines in the district. If it is possible tn put tickets
on the samples they would have a
great deal of added interest to tho
uninformed, and the utmost benefit
would then lie had front the display,
whicli is a thoroughly comprehensive
one, and shows very clearly the diversified mining interest* to lie found
in thu district.
Upon Dr. J. W. Rutledge, of this
city, is devolving the tank of opposing Dr. J. H. King, minister of pub*
lie works in the federal government,
and the minister in charge of the direction of the Liberal campaign in
this province. Even at this early
.stage in the election it is being freely predicted that Dr. King will have
need of all the prestige his position
gives him to hold his Beat. Old-time-
ers recall that till the time of the
by-election which sent Dr. King to
Ottawa, and which was scarcely  a
fair  test,  the  Liberals  have   never
won in the East Kootenay federal
sent when there was a straight party
fight.   In the pre-war days Dr. King
was defeated by A. S. Goodeve, when
the   Fast   Kootenay  seat  had   been
newly created.   In 1917 Dr. Bonnell

Show Moves On  to Nelion
The Conklin & Garrett Shows left
n Sunday morning last for Nelson,
where they are putting on the midway for the .Nelson fair, for the
second year in succession. It cannot
be said that they made any money
here, although they took in a lot.
The crowds at night were not as
large as they needed to be for the
show to make good on, with the heavy
expenses they are under. The "Wall
of Death" was the real thriller of
the sideshows, and was well worth
eeing, and the "Crossword House"
was something novel, while the other
attractions were about the usual line
of circus or big show entertainment,
though the "Wild West Show" had
ome good features. The merry-go-
rounds, ferrts wheel and chair-o-plane
were as popular as ever with the
kiddies—and some adult kiddies as
well. The show left a good deal of
money in the eity, with the light and
power consumed, thc amusement tax
paid, and the outlay for other purposes, among their expenses here being u large sized eight page advertising newspaper, to he used in getting
their dates lined up for another season, and which wa* executed fnr them
at The Herald offlce.
Blue Trail Blazer Here
E R. Fairbarn, chief clerk of the
federal information bureau, National Parks, BanfT, was a visitor tn the
city this week as a representative of
the Alberta Good Roads Association.
He was on a trip over this part of
the Blue Trail to find out how much
of the trail needed blazing and to
lay plans for this work where it was
found necessary. He covered the
ground pretty rapidly, coming from
Banff to Cranbrook by noon on Wednesday, and expected to spend that
night in Couer D'Alene. Some idea
of the growth of the tourist traffic
at Banff may be seen from the fact
that during one week this summer
there was not loss than 2380 tourists
there each night, and for many weeks
the average was maintained of over
fifteen hundred tourists per night,
A feature of the Banff tourist season this year, he says, wns the increasing number of Kuskatrhewuu

Grain figures Issued by tbe Harbor Commission of Montreal show
that on August 1st all grain shipment records were broken by ona
day's delivery of 2,277,712 bushels
of grain to outgoing ships. Harbor

A prophecy that thfl Orient would
become in tho very near future a
really largo importer of Canadian
wheat was made recently by Hon.
Dr. J. H. King, Minister'of Public
Works. In predicting incrensed
Orient trade in grain, Dr. King
pointed out that Imports of wheat
from Canada for 1923-11)24 increased
by 400 per cent.
Over fifteen thousand men left the
east on the first harvesters excursion
from the east to the wheat fields in
the middle of August. Pour other
excursions are to -follow from Toronto later in August and September, when it is expected tliat tho
majority of the remainder of the 50,-
000 men required for the harvest will
travel west.
During the coming winter Canada
will see the debut of a new transportation device known as the Snow-
motor. This consists of two hollow
cigar shaped cylinders or drums to
which flanges, resembling cork
screws, are attached. Those drums
are fixed to ait automobile or tractor in the place of the wheels and,
by rotating actually float the machine over the snow. The snow-
motor is regarded as especially valuable in the transportation of lumber; it can negotiate snow of any
depth and can operate in countries
where other methods of transport-
tion are impossible or too costly and
can also make roads which other
vehicles can use. It is manufactured
In Detroit and will be on the market
in Montreal during tlie coming winter.

lnvermere, B.C., Sept. 10.—Work
on what may eventually be ihe chief
Dominion Government Experimental
station for both Kootenay districts is
being pushed ahead slowly but solidly under thc direction of superintendent R. Gladwyn Newton. B.S.A,
Last year the new site, which comprises some two hundred odd acres
behind Windermere, was acquired by
the department from the Soldier
Settlement Board. The building
season which remained was short,
but during the period which was left
there were erected a cow barn, silo,
two small cottages anil a piggery.
This year the work was further extended by the putting up of several
miles of woven wire fencing supported by metal posts, the opening
up and re-locating of many irrigation ditches and the turning over of
old land which for some years had
remained dormant. Now the work
is being further carried on. Tlie
cow stable or barn is being completed by the liberal use of cement
in the making of mangers and
floors, the installation of metal fixings for the stalls and the putting
up of aerials for carrying out manure and the speedy distribution of
feed. Some ten acres of sunflowers
are about ready for the cutting, and
before long the huge silo will be
filled and the roothouse stored with
products of the field. A horse barn
is under way, the frame being about
ready for erection; the foundation
and floors are in to carry the ice
houBe and dairy building,' while another dwelling has been in part started and the foundation dug for the
superintendent's new house. Some
of these may not be rushed to completion just at the present.
In the poultry department a new
brood house and a house for incubation have been completed ready for
next season. The laying pullets are
housed in their new quarters and
are already very busy. Over one
thousand pounds of honey have been
produced, and the bees are still very
The work is nbout to start on one
more important and probably very
necessary adjunct, to thc farm, .that
is the building of a water reservoir
at a sufficient elevation to procure
a good fall for the distribution for
domestic purposes.
Incidentally it may be noted that
the price of honey has taken a drop
in these parts, a four and n half
pound pail retailing at Sl.OO. instead of SI.2"i as heretofore.

THE [all fair last week proved one thing, if it
proved anything :it all, and that is, provided it is
handlc-.l right, the arrangements heing properly
looked afler by someone who is really interested
in the success o( the event, it can be put over right.
The successful year lhe farmers have experienced
tended to make the exhibits unusually attractive so
far as iln* farm sections were concerned aud any
who needed their convictions strengthened as to lhe
possibilities of the East Kootenay as a dairying district, or tor (nixed fanning, should have derived
profit  [roiii the exhibits placed on display.
While it may seem to be the logical place for
holding a fair, there is nevertheless much room for
argument as to whether it is wise to continue to
hold the fair in the old exhibition building. Apart
from il- location, somewhat out of town, which in
itself provides an excuse for sonic to absent them
selves, il would not bc necessary to remove the exhibit, except perhaps the livestock, till later, if the
exhibition was staged al a more central point in the

to attend who can goat no other time, but as it was,

THE Premier of Canada is nol setting a very high
standard ol political oratory, when he says that
"Providence is with us," iu taking Conservative
senators tu "another home," thereby opening the
yvay for iln- appointment of Liberal successors. It
may be one way for reforming the senate, but is
not one whit better than anything that has gone
before, and ean scarcely be counted as progress. It
is nol an established facl yet that the senate needs
reforming. Simply tu stale that it is not an elective body does nol ipso facto mean tbat it is all I
the bad, and similarly tlie fact tliat it has rejected
measures passed by ibe commons, simply raises the
question as to which was tlte sounder course. The
senate works iu a different atmosphere to the
house of commons. Noi affected by popular clamor
fur or against any particular course, is there not
reason to suppose that the issues can be faced iu a
more even tempered way, aud dissected with a coolness and delilieraleuess nut possible in Ihe somewhat hectic atmosphere of lhe commons?
What is needed for the senate is nol so much
au amendment of its construction—for Sir. Wilfrid
Laurier described it as an essential safeguard of
the smaller provinces against tlie larger ones—but
a change in the manner of making tlie appointments,
so as lu put there: men of active aud well balanced
thought, nut merely parly followers who have but
echoed their leaders, lu this course the Liberal
government has not pointed to any higher course
than tin- Conservatives followed, and so far as an
actual program of senate reform goes, the Premier
is careful lo commit himself but very sparingly, because after au election il someway ceases to become
au issue.

Till-', floodgates of political oratory are soon to
be opened, and the hustings will soon resound
with the voice of the demagogues. It is to be hoped
llial llu- speakers will succeed in arousing from their
Stupor the mass of the electorate wlio still persist
iu the fallacy lhat all politicians arc tarred witli the
same brush, and that there is nothing tn choose
between Ihem anyway. This is akin to the puerile
idea slid current, strange to say, aud spoken iu all
sincerity by snuie, llial "all politics are rotten," and
Unless om- wishes lo become polluted, it is
wise therefore to have nothing whatever to
do with them. To say the least, this is discounting very severely lhe efforts of some men wlio
devote the best years of their lives lo the good of
the country, only lo bc Iold tliat it is all rotten. One
cannot help but suspect that thc mental state of
those who would thus condemn all those who interest themselves in.thc affairs of the nation is
not all that il should be.
The fail is thai many people who use the
expression lhal "one is as bad as Ihe other," are
simply using thi.s as a cloak for their own ignorance
of the questions of the day. Politics, iu its fundamental .sense, is concerned with principles, and unless lhe course nf lhc application of these principles
is followed year by year, it is impossible to form
sound judgements as to conclusions, ll is not possible for a man to dabble iu a law book occasionally,
and call himself a lawyer—it takes application, study
and research continually,  Just so it is with politics,
and those who have at least been in constant touch
with the events of national bearing, are entitled to
some consideration, and a fair hearing.
'i'n vote the man, instead of thc party, is still
another fallacy. An unpopular man who is allied to
sound principles is a better candidate at any time
than a popular man tied up to unsound principles.
When successful candidates go to the house of commons or provincial legislatures, they are at once
called upon in voting to align themselves for or
against certain principles that the government of
the day is advocating. Men are plastic, subject to
the whim of public opinion. Political principles, on
the other band, are abiding, and the sooner the people at large make themselves acquainted with the
fundamentals of the two parties now before the
country seeking endorsement, just as soon will
there be real government by the people and for the
people. If governments do not legislate iu just the
way they ought; if tliey show a disposition to flout
tbe will of the majority—it should be laid at the
door of those who will not deign to take any interest in politics, who will not punish lapses from
political uprightness, nor reward stedfaslness—because they are indifferent,
Be something—that is thc call to the electorate at thi.s election as never before. Both parties
declare this to bc the most critical election the
country has known for years. If it is then it is
ligb time fnr an awakened public conscience to excess itself more emphatically than ever, aud
ipinions cannot be formulated without some knowledge of what is at stake. This is fundamentally the
purpose of so much public speaking and activity at
election time. It is, strange as this may seem to
thc mercenary minded, more for the public good
than for what anybody can expect to get out of it.

The senate is in process of reformation after the
manner of Sir Wilfred Laurier. While the French chief-
tuin was in Opposition he made Senate reform a leading
plunk in Ins platform. And when he had got into power
no more waa heard of it. Asked in the House of Commons when he proposed to introduce a measure to reform the Senate, he replied that he was reforming It as
rapidly us he could by the appointment nf Liberal senators. Mr. King has ten new senators to place. Several
of his Cabinet colleagues have been gazetted as senators
already, along with some Liberal ex-members of Parliament, and he points out joyfully that the hostile senate majority is now only 13. If Mr. King is returned
to power, about two years will suffice to gain a Liberal
majority in that chamber. Then the reform will be complete. When that time arrives we will hear no more
about senate reform from Mr. King. He says the new
Senators appointed have agreed to support his plan nf
reform. What that plan is he does not know himself.—
The Sentinel.
Manitoba Liberals hnve a way of their own of
doing things politically—and many people insist there is
a reuson for most things. They had a convention recently, but instead of passing resolutions and declaring
their confidence in thc Liberal Government and Premier King, they did the opposite, and with considerable
vengcunce. They passed a number of critical resolutions and nearly all of the resolutions adopted expressed
more or less dissatisfaction with the King Government
and its record; they insisted that the government appoint
a minister of immigration and pursue a vigorous immigration policy. Following the passing of the resolutions
the convention listened and applauded a number of
speakers who urged the return of at least twenty-five
Liberals from the western provinces.—Grand Forks
In the face of the greatest crime wave ever ex-
perinced by a civilized country, the U. S. League for the
Abolition of Capital Punishment goes serenely on its way
with its campaign. The plan is to introduce bills in the
varous legislatures, carrying the campaign into every
state where either a gallows or an electric chair is now
utilized. It is interesting to note that there are eight
Stutes where capital punishment has Heen abolished,
while in four other States it had been abolished, but
hus since been re-established.

people are beginning at the wrong end. What they
should do Is to insist that these gunmen mend their ways.
The evident difficulty in the United States Is that
the gunman kills and gets away with it, while in some
other countries, notably England and Canada, the law
gets away with the gunman. Quick trials and convictions, where guilty, without endless technicalities, is
unquestionably the secret which makes for law and
order in the British Isles and in Canada. Such glaring
instances of a miscarriage of justice as the recent Scott
cuse in Chicago would not be possible in either country
In the United States there is too much sobbing
over the predicament in which the murderer finds himself und too little over the family of the victim. Money
and flowers nnd such things poured in on R. T. Scott,
but we did not hear that anybody paid any attention to
the family of the drug clerk whom he murdered in
order that he might rob him Saturday Night.
Revelstoke Review: According to police statistics

the twelve months of 1924. Eight of the murderers
committed suicide, five were apprehended by the police
und three escaped. In Chicago and New York, killings
are said to average one a day. On August 7 there were
ninety persons in the United States awaiting execution.
In Great Britain crime generally appears to be
on the decline. More than twenty prisons In England
and Wales have closed since 1914. Only forty prisons
ure now in use In the country and these are far from
fully occupied. Such encouraging statistics are by no
means forthcoming from the United States, It is a dull
day, indeed, when no item of criminal violence from
some American centre appears In the news. Great Britain has occasion to feel proud over her remarkable record, especially when one considers the nature of the
times through which she is passing. But then the British people have always been noted foe their courage
under conditions of adversity.

vc stock, vegetables, meats, fruit,
ikes, preserved fruits, flowers,

ie district this season was very
iticcable. Apples are usually very
rom 1 nent in the sale, hut this year
lore were vory few on display. On
10 other hand the display of vegfl-

Harold White, fifteen-year-old
boy of thi.s eity, who not long ago
was soiling papers for the Herald, is
now making a name for himself as
ii jockey. He is a son of Mr. and
Mrs. White, of French Avenue. Har-
Id was born n little over fifteen
yeurs ago on a homestead near the
old Medicine Hat ranch in Alberta,
md moved with his parents to Cranbrook in 1921. His father, a veteran of the world war, is employed at
Kimberley as a steel tempcrer, and
three brothers also served overseas.
In the spring of HI24, while T. .1.
Wellman, formerly of this city, was
here paying a visit to Cranbrook,
he noticed Harold on the street as a
newsic and decided he had found the
hoy he had been looking for for a
considerable  time.
Mr. Wellman called on his parents
and arranged to take Harold to Vancouver with him and try him out.
Later he signed up a contract, and
since then Harrold has passed ns Mr.
Wellman's   nephew.
The story of his subsequent success is best told by the following extract from the Montann-Record-Her-
ald. telling of the races at the Montana state fair recently.
The paper says:
"Turf enthusiasts at the Montana
state fair have watched the start of
a career that promises to make such
horse history as has been woven
around the names of Tod Sloan, Earl
famed jockeys—and the story surrounds the budding hopes held out
for little Harold White, leading winner of the meeting. In the first four
days of the fair he has had M
mounts, and only once during that
time has he placed outside the mon
ey, that being Wednesday, when hi
finished fourth on Kaskina. He ha*
piloted eight winners, finished second four times, third once, and fourth once.
"And he hns been riding on the
track  only three  weeks.
"He's a cute little rascal. Race
enthusiasts at the Montana meeting
have been placing their faith in Jockey White regardless of the breeding
and form of thc mount, ami they
have been cleaning up.
"His honest little face hns the
tint of n rose. He hasn't learned
the lingo of the paddock. He hasn't
been exposed to the burning sun.
the sting of the sand and the bite of
the dust long enough to give him a
cont of tun. He weighs only OE
pounds and is just 16 years old.
Ue'^ thc pride of the meeting and—
unless he falls a victim of the age-
old malady of allowing prosperity t
go to his head—greater things are
in store for him. After the Montana
meet he goes to the races nt Salt
Lake with his employers.
"White is Onder contract to the
Cowdell and McAvoy stables of Victoria, B. C. These horsemen have
Zelma Roberts, Romalda and Or. K.
in their string nnd have been topping
the winning list with the trio. When
Jockey White is not up on one of
their mounts he takes care of entries
from other stables.
"Albert Cowdell, one of the own
ers of the stable, as well as Teddy
McAvoy, are proud of the achieve
ments of the little lad with tho Mel-
lins' Food complexion, and the ability of a veteran horseman. They
scoff at the suggestion that be isn't
able to handle a "heavy headed" nag,
and assert he has demonstrated his

Wliat is more dangerous than
ocean travel, riding on railroads,
or flying in an airplane?
The answer, given by Mr. Johnson, of tlie National Life Insurance Company, is FAT.
Fat kills Americans more rapidly
than anything; else. Fatty degeneration of the heart kills many.
Fat accumulates un middle-aged
business men, and that kills them
before their time.
In old age especially fat is dangerous. And in old age it is must
difficult to get rid of dangerous fat.
The heart won't stand exercise
that might take the fat off. The
feeble will cannot control diet.
The safest place In the world as
regards accidents is the cabin of a
big steamship on the ocean.
Next In safety comes a railroad
train, ami 4>efore long the flying
machine will be safer than either.
The man in greatest danger [a
the fat man past middle age, eating heartily and hurriedly when
he is tired.   Don't insure him.
Good news for little automobile
owners. Gasoline prices are
slashed all over the country. Yesterday, in Eastern territory, the
cut waB three cents a gallon. In
the Middle West many buy gas
under 14 cents. It makes a big
difference to those that count the
cost of living and motoring.
It means nothing to thc big men;
they don't care what gusoline
costs. And many of them, owning
oil stocks, feel rather sad. A three-
cent cut ln gas may mean a (80
drop In oil stocks.
A short-horn bull was sold In
the Argentine Republic yesterday
for $00,000, record price for that
breed.     The real  record  is  tlie
price pfttn '-n :::..' -sunny by the
Carnation Farms Company for a
Holstein bull—$102,000.
These prices show what can be
done by breeding among animals.
You can get a perfectly good bull
for $40. But a little change in
the shape nf the animal, ■ produced by a caioful selection of
the mysterious chromosomes,
makes a big difference.
Students of eugenics think careful breeding will produco equul
improvement in human beluga,
They nre mistaken!
The following handy synopsis of
the game regulations affecting this
district were prepared by game warden Gregory Thomas for reference
without having to go through the
lengthy list of regulations issued hy
the government.
Learned men, Including church
men, once taught tliat there was
a roof to this earth, solid, held up
by its own strength ami called
the sky.
When Gulleo denied it ami said
the earth wns a round hall whirling uroutul iln' sun, he had tii gill
down on his knees saying that he
"retracted, abjured and abhorred
his false teachings"—which happened to be perfectly true.
The idea of a solid sky above
us, with stars planted- in il here
urul there, faded out. ltut now tho
radio experts of thc Navy say the
earth actually has a "roof" of another kind. It oxtsts, presumably,
where our thin atmosphere inolU
away into the ether, " an umi/.ed
region in the higher levels of thn
atmosphere,'' tho scientists call it.
The    "imponderable ether,"   so
dense that solid steel in comparison is like a eourso fish oet, certainly does enclose our earth uml
its thin atmospharc.
Radio waves such as we use may
be able to travel outside Mint atmosphere. If so, science will find
some other wave that will take
messages to other planets.
If light-produoillg waves can
travel from thfl sun to the earth,
men will find some wave lhal will
cairy information from the eaith
to the sun antl beyond.
Leam, proud parents, that Die
much praised "ten-pound hoy baby" isn't thfl thing at all. The average normal boy baby weighs 7','j
pounds at birth.
One learned Italian has written
a hook to prove that women, by
special diet, can uml should keep
the unborn child from becoming too
fat fnr its own -sake ami for the
mother's sake,
We have a hit to learn about
taking care nf children before they

Flett, superintendent of the Cnn-
adinn Pacific railway a proposed
change in the time schedulo of the
Kootenay Central brunch of the
C.P.R., on Tuesduy afternoon, the
fifteenth of September, 1925, in the
Board of Trade rooms, lnvermere.
T. R. Flett, superintendent of the
Canadian Pacific Railway company,
and J. Robertson, resident engineer
of the same company, from Cranbrook, B. C.) were also present.
Mr. W. Howard Cleland, president,
asked Mr. Flett, in a few words, to
explain the position of the company
in regard to the proposed schedule
which he submitted, as pertaining to
the operation of the Kootenny Central and showing connections at
terminal points. This Mr. Flett did.
The discussion which followed was
long and most friendly on both sides.
It resulted in the following motion:
Resolved that in the opinion of the
members of this Bonrd of Trade the
[imposed change in time tnble in the
Kootenay Central branch of the Canadian Pacific railway, which change
has just heen outlined to us, is not
considered to be in the best interests
of the Windermere district and it is
further believed will tend to retard
the future development of the same
for the following reasons:
1—Passengers from north of Lake
Windermere who now regularly make
trips to Golden to transact, hanking,
marketing und other business would
under the proposed schedule practically require three days in which to
make the return trip which can now
practically be mnde by them in one
2—Passengers from nil points on
the Kootenay Central branch desirous of making an ensthound connection would under the proposed
sehdule he obliged to either take the
train which leaves Golden the following day about five in the morn
ing, or remain in Golden until the
following afternoon;
;!—Passengers desirous of going
west from Golden would under the
proposed schedule require to take a
train leaving Golden about midnight,
on the day of arrivnl, or remain in
Golden until the following day at
4—The passengers on southbound
trains, under the proposed schedule
leaving for points west of Cranbrook, or for the United States,
would require to remain in Cranbrook until the following day, in
order to make their train connection;
5—Under the proposed schedule,
perishable freight from the north
would arrive too lute at Lake Windermere to be put on the local markets
to be disposed on the same day and
would in the case of Saturday shipments have to be carried over Sunday with possibly considerable loss
to the merchants or consignees;
(i—Further the. proposed schedule
would militate against the interests
of the district in regard to the mail
service in particular and other ways
in general;
7—Further as a somewhat similar
service to the proposed schedule was
put into effect in 1015 and was not
found to work advantageously, and
wns therefore abandoned.
Therefore Be It Resolved that for
the above mentioned reasons this
board would humbly suggest that the
local time tnble ns at present in force
he continued and that a copy of this
resolution be submitted forthwith by
the secretary to Mr. T. R. Flett,
superintendent of the Canadian Pacific railway respectfully requesting

Some time ago a provincial fire
marshal criticized the Grand Forks
volunteer tire brigade, drawing particular attention to the. absence of
the chief from the city and the apparent lack of any head. As a result the city council there decided to
suspend payment of the chief's salary
until a new chief was appointed. The
members of the brigade contended
that the deputy chief had full power
to act in the chief's absence and as
the council would not alter its decision, the fire brigade has resigned
in a body.

A tramp, about 25 years
nursing a reluctant bonfire
his companion, Potts, an old
kneels on the edge of of ai
seeking with the aid of a tin
a long cord to draw water f
river. Suddenly a small boulder
crashes down from the heigh ta of
Granite Gorge, nnd, grazing Potts,
causes him to slide over tho brink.
Tbe younger man finds him entangled in a brush only three feet he-
low and rescues him.
CHAPTER 1—Continued
"Prop your cover, Bob, and we'll
get the water. It's way past a polite hour for the evening meat now!"
Presently, with Bob seated acrosi
his legs, Potts was stretched flat oil
his stomach—that is, as flat aa the
bulging front outline nf his figure
would permit!—lowering a can on
a string toward the river that was
invisible, though only thirty feet
down. It was an uncanny operation
in the. darkness and Potts had to
handle his line as daintily and skilfully ns a trout fisherman to keep
it from being snatched away from
him by the rushing water. Three
times he emptied the small can into
the large one, which Boi) held. The
fourth time he retained the water
in the small ean; that was for coffee.
Boh, obviously a neophyte voga-lth
stew. But tonight he was cold and
hungry and miserable. Again, liis
mouth corner twisted—iron it-ally.
Other things seemed far behind—
yet, he realized with a sudden bitter
catch in his chc-t that the appetizing interest with which he watched
Potis was just another sign—that he
no longer cared. lt was the real
drifter's viewpoint!
Potta' threadbare pockets were
like magician's bats. First out of
ihem came a large and softening tomato, which Potts squeezed between
his fingers, tearing it Into hits that
he dropped Into the boiling water.
Four potatoes, In various stages of
health, were similarly treated; four
more potatoes, fished from his limit-
tew pockets, were thrust Into the
fire beneath the ean to roast. A
naked piece of raw meat was taken
from the pocket of honor—inside his
coat—and shredded in to join tho
vegetables. Three small fish, cause
and time of death uncertain, were
brought forth. Potts twisted their
heads off, ripped down their bellies
with a pudgy forefinger, dismbowelling them with the same operation,
and pitched them forthwith Into the
hobgoblin brew. A small, choice assortment of seasoning vegetables
brought the concoction to an artistic consummation—a fat carrot with
the scraggy green plume unrcmoved,
onions,    and   a   miscellaneous
bond, forgot some of his own pre- handful from the bottom of one poe-

occupation as be watched the fat
and tatteretl philosopher prepare,
with ritualistic care and genial fussing, the favorite dish of highway
chefs—hobo stew. Finding two
stones   of   almost   equal   she.   Potts
ssqueeied the now brisk fire between
them until the stones were close
enough for the bottom of the Btew
can to just bridge ihem. He kept
adding fuel, and poking and nursing
the fire into greater ardor, muttering to himself inoantatively the
while. When the water came to a
boil. Potts stood up. An expectant
smile wreathed his chubby features;
ami while he smacked his lips, winked his eyes, and wagged his head in
professional vanity, he began to
empty the contents of his grimy packets into the bubbling water,
"A feast fit for two kings aye.
for a whole kingdom of king-! -will
be the result of this evening'- culinary activities, my young friend," he
said unctuously. "I've been a whole
week collecting the ingredients for
Ibis dish!"
A short week ngo Bob's appetite
would have evaporated upon witnessing    the    manufacture    of   this
ket which he turned inside out and
shook into the can. blandly indifferent to the fact that articles which
were not, strictly speaking, edible
had also .Joined in this last minute
, avalanche.
Then, with a sigh of delight. Potts
sat down to await the satisfactory
moment when the Mew would he
' thoroughly cooked. To Bob fell the
task of stining the steaming mess
wiili a casual stick, the other end of
which he used as a poker to goad
the fire.
Meanwhile, during tbe foregoing
' preparations, Potts had alternated
his culinary Incantations with nn
eloquent description to Bob of the
history and nature -nf this place in
which the fate of the night road had
! taken them. Potts told flob thnt in
the fiisi years of tin- trestle's existence over Granite Gorge rockslides
from Old Witch'- Mask—so called
because Its leering face, nosing close
to the midnre of ihe sharp curve
around which the tracks approached
Ithe Gorge, hid lhe trestle from view

despite the cultural efforts of the '
road's best construction engineers, I
who massaged and braced and cared
for the complexion of the Oh! Witch I
as carefully as the skin of 0 testy
lowagcr might be treated in a beauty parlor. Finally their work had
won comparative safety for the
Gorge passage; rocks showered
lown no more and, as twenty years
went by without a slide, the locomotive drivers no longer slowed up,
as in the old days, except to tbe
point dictated by ordinary caution.
"The Limited Mai!," the Transroc-
kian's famed flyer, habitually was
taken across the Gorge at thirty-five
an hour, and better.
To people moving on the lawful
business and pleasure traffic of the
world, the bald and forbidding nak-
idncss of Granite Gorge, high and
deep in the lost places of the Rocky
Mountains, gave no invitation to linger.   There was plenty "for to see"
once!—in its sheer immensity of
drops and jutments and leaps, but
nothing "for to admire" because it
was sinister and not with gracious
strokes that Nature had sculptured
here. A chill wind constantly brushed the railroad trestle span; and like*
a rattler's incensed warning the narrow granite gash gave back the labored roars of passing locomotives
with a resounding and venomous resentment. Trainmen and passengers
breathed easier when the Gorge passage lay behind. It was A-ith wisdom aforethought, the legitimate accommodation of necessity to virtue,
that the Transrockian directors had
arranged their through schedules so
that the several crack flyers of the
road crossed the Gorge at night.

mocked ribald trainmen, "when she's
