According to toirtaiive arrangements which  are likely to  be com-
Icted, Hon. R. p. Bruce, Lieutenant-
Governor (»f British Columbia, will
ifficially open the fall fair in Cranbrook tbis yenr. Mr. Bruce was
seen by W. II. Wil"! and others
from this city, recently, at Victoria,
nd consented to do this, and at that
time it is possible that something in
the nature of a public function may
be arranged at that time, at which
lome recognition of thc esteem in
which Mr. Bruce is held in this district can be made. The Lieutenant-Governor is visiting the Slocan
and West Kootenay districts shortly.
It has been the custom for the past
few years for that official to attend
the Windermere district full fair
every year for the purpose of an official opening, and if this is carried
out this year it will have an especially interesting significance.

(Special Despatch to The Herald)
London,    May    12.—The    Hritish
general strike wns called off today,
the labor leader- yielding to the government's demand that the general
conflict   must   .'ease   1.  fore   the   government will consider negotiating in

Conference   on   Friday
(Special Despatch to The Herald
London,  May   12.—Great   Britain
today won the greatest industrial war
over launched against any government, when, afler eight and one half
days, the general strike order, which
caused millions of workers to leave
their job*, was cancelled. The victory establishes the fact that the organized force of trade- unionism
i^ unable to effect a complete stoppage of trade, industry and transport.
The miners will meet on Friday to
vote "ii whether to go back to work.
In the meantime, A. J. Cook, secretary of the Miners' Federation, ir-
ate because the larger strike was
called off without the miners' permission, has ordered all miners to
remain out till the Friday conference.
The withdrawal of the strike order
by the Trades Union Congress was
unconditional. Telegrams were despatched to the headiiuar.erE of the
individual unions affected by the
general order, and the executives of
these bodies are already beginning
to send their men back to work. The
wheels of industry, stilled for nearly
nine days, are turning again. The
government is said, unofficially, to
have agreed to obtain the withdrawal
f-f the lock-out notices which drove
the miners above ground when the
latter- -efused '" acrei the te*m.q
of the Coal Commission .- request.
The withdrawal of the general
strike order was announced after a
meeting at Premier Baldwin's residence, 10 Downing Street, between
members of the cabinet and representatives of the general trade;- union
council. The miner=' executive committee this afternoon rejected the
trade- union council's proposals for
a solution of the mine dispute. They
explained that in calling off the general strike, the trades union council
took sole responsibility.

A Startling
and Attractive
New Fountain Pen
Waterman's newest fountain pen is called Ripple-
Rubber. The material is hard rubber—the most
lasting and satisfying of all pen materials. The
color design is a series of cardinal and black
ripples resembling in design the marks left
by wavelets on the sea-shore. Although
startling when it catches the eye, it
never becomes tiresome or monotonous. The effect is original
and beautiful, exciting admiration whenever seen.
Every Ripple-Rubber pen
is made with spun metal lip-
guard which prevents cracking;
with Waterman's patented pocket
clip that holds the pen securely in
the pocket; Waterman's unequaled filling device that automatically locks and
will not get out of order; Waterman's patented spoon-feed that guarantees immediate
and even flow of ink.   Like all Waterman's,
this Ripple-Rubber Pen may be fitted with a pen
point exactly to your liking.
Like all Waterman's, this Ripple-Rubber Pen li guaranteed to give
perfect service without time limit.

P. E. I. Joinj Confederation
Prince Kdward Island joined the
Confederation of the Canadian colonies July 1st 1873 after n bitter
controversy. The island wns flourishing. The people hnd wrested
their homes from the wilderness by
their unaided efforts, nnd the settle-
nient of the land question was in
flight. They had obtained a system
of government to their liking. They
had complete control of their own affair* and a militia quite adequate
for their defence. The import
duties, low U they were, were sufficient for all public needs, nnd they
could he altered or abolished to suit
any  contingency  that   might   arise.
Early   Condition!
Thore was no public debt, since the
railway was an asset against the debentures that had been issued for its
construction. The debentures had
were far beyond its powers to support. The securities at the moment
were saleable only at a heavy loss,
been pledged by the contractors to
m local hank for advances that
Oominion government the holders of
the debentures would be relieved of
the strain; and thc directors of thc
bank were curiously intermingled
with the public men of the duy. Thc
determination to join the confederation In reality arose from a financial
motive. The promotors, however,
did not fail to ascribe their activity
to consideration of high patriotism,
and they had all the help that the
Canadian and Imperial government
could give. The matter was first
bruited in thc assembly of 1804 ap-
rarontty at the suggestion of the
mperltu government as an echo
from the legislatures of Nova Scotia
and New Brunswick, when delegates
were appointed to discuss the lesser
proposal of a union of thc three
maritime provinces.   This idea ori-
§inated first with the great Nova
cotian, Joseph Howe. At this time
Sir John A. Macdonald was a resident of Charlottetown recuperating
from a late illness. The fresh sea
air and the summer breezes had its
Historic Matting
Tha meeting was held in Charlottetown ana permission for the
the Canadian government to urge the
larger scheme. No proceedings were
published, but it was understood that
tha union of the Maritime provinces
was considered impracticable, and it
was proposed that a conference
should b« bald in Quebec to consider
tbt wider view* The delegates pro-
1 to QeeWe bf a sassewhat in-
direct route by way of Halifax, St.
John, Fred eric ton, aud continued
their progress to Montreal, Ottawa
and Toronto. The report of the delegates at the Quebec conference, or
the Fathers of Confederation, as they
are commonly called, wns adopted
by '.he Canadian legislature in 1866,
On account of a financial stringency
thai prevailed in tlie larger markets
of the world. If the cost of building the railway were assumed hy the
but in Prince Kdward Island hostility broke out at once. The Island's
delegates consisted of six members,
Col, Gray, Edward A. A. Macdonald,
Kdward Palmer, George Coles, Edward Whelnn and T. II. Haviland.
The historic meeting in Chnrlotte-
town is preserved in n fine photograph In the possession of A. A. Mae-
lean, the head of the R.C.M.P. in
Ottawa. You can see the exnet

THURSDAY, MAY 13th, 1926
IN the eyes of people who have desired to consider the disturbed labor situation in Britain
with an open mind, the (act that the general strike
ba-i been called off, does not mean that the government has won, nr that the strikers have lost. The
government, as a matter of fact, was only standing
on the principle that the strike weapon was not to
be recognized as a factor in dealing with the points
at issue, The cabinet refused positively to go one
step further iu the matter of intermediary negotiations between the strikers and the mine owners until tbe sympathy strike was called off, and in that
they have won their point. "The British people
have wtin" was the way tlie government put it, not
altogether happily sn far as the phraseology is concerned, but emphasizing the fact that the disputed
points will now be dealt with constitutionally, instead uf by coercion.
The termination of the general strike brings
to notice once again that the British public, often
termed stolid and easy going, is not to be forced,
but can be more readily led. The main issues of
the dispute have not been jeopardized in any way,
but it is now realized that settlement must lie reached amicably, and not by wielding the strike weapon.
Public opinion is not necessarily hostile to the demands of labor in this case, but only to the method
of bringing it to a bead.
And it can be said for the lalior leaders that
they showed the best judgment in refusing for the
strikers monetary assistance proffered in a considerable sum  from the communists of Russia.

on. It has not been found possible to extend lo His
Honor in a public way greetings from the larger
tlistrict in whose behalf lie has labored for so many
years, antl to whicli it is properly desired to give expression. At that time, therefore, if may be possible to give the visit of the Lieutenant-Governor
a double significance, and just now, when it is
desired to impress the community with the value
of an enthusiastically conducted fair, his visit to
open it officially will mean a great deal.
♦   *   *   *   •
IT is interesting to learn that the suggestion advanced in these columns some time ago that the
fall fair might very fittingly be opened by His Honor I.ieut.-Gov. R. R. Bruce, is likely to be acted up-
SLOWLY perhaps, but very surely, the itlea is
gaining ground in the cily that one of the
avenues through which service clubs antl organizations aiming to promote activities that arc of benefit to the community, can attain that goal is by the
assistance given to organized sport, particularly
among the young people of llu- cily. The younger
children now have their recreation ground, antl for
the grown-ups there arc the cars, the golf links,
and the tennis courts, but there is still a big gap
that is hard to fill. The Amateur Athletic Association has done a great deal in this direction, .-intl
the debt the cily owes this body antl those connected
with it, i.s not realized. Bill there is not being given
to that body tbe undivided support that there should
be, yet it is questionable if there can be any more
worthy channel for community service, than by the
promotion and proper supervision of sport among
the young people.
What one man can do who is willing to give
time and effort is seen now in the enthusiasm with
which the game of lacrosse has been taken up this
year. This could be carried a great deal further
if organizations in thc city whose aims can be interpreted in that light, could be induced to make a
contribution between them that would ensure the
paid services of a supervisor or director, whose undivided work would be to see that the games are
carried on in the proper spirit, and under the proper
supervision. The sports ground ought to be in
pretty steady use these summer evenings, and a man
with the proper itleas, anil the ability lo handle boys,
who could make it his business to be there for
that one particular purpose, would be doing a great
deal to benefit sport.
It is simply making somebody's particular
business out of what is now carried on by those who
are able to do it when they can. A lot of sport activities could be co-ordinated in this way in a manner that would stimulate not only the interest of
the participants, but also of those who support that
particular line of sport.

Less Than Week To End Of
Firsl Period Oi Contest
Booming along on the wings of
popularity, with the stamp of public
approval placed upon it and with
interest increasing by leaps and
hounds, the Herald's $2,600 SaJes-
nianship Campaign will soon put
from the merely interesting to the
exciting stages
It is not what you have done, it
i.s what you are doing and going to
do that counts. Do not delay too
long before going after your fint
subscriptions, for only a few more
days remain for the big EXTRA
credits given for every $20 collected.
Ambitious men and women, eager
to shure in this record breaking prize
distribution are not going to delay
their start, for it is too obvious that
early activity ig half the race.
This results from three causes:
First, an early starter has a maximum of time in which to accumulate
an auto-winning credit total; second,
the early starter can line up unbroken support of friends and acquaintances before competition has a
chance to cut into the field; third,
and most important, subscriptions
are worth more now, during the
100,000 EXTRA credit offer, than
they will be at any later time in the
campaign, and so the way to winning
places is paved for starters at this
time. This greatest vote offer of
the campaign closes on May 19th,
and so really energetic aspirants for
the rich rewards are pointing their
best efforts with that date find
firmly In their minds.
Every Hour Wertk Meaey
Do you realise how much each and
every hour Is worth during this first
period? If you do, then you are
one of those candidates who are making this big credit offer put you In a
winning position for the prise you I
must desire.
It is not always easy to obtain subscriptions, but remember, all the
others have the same experience.
Nearly every day, a new story it
brought to the campaign ofllce by
some candidate, told to him or her
by some outsider who "has an axe
'o grind."
Most of these stories are absurd
and are told to discourage candidates
who have the ability to win and can
win if they persevere and do their
best. We all find times when things
seem to be going against us, but the
paign. It is a close race and is dally
becoming more and more exciting as
new potential winners forge Into the
front ranks, on to gold and glory.
There are no real leaders, all are
in a bunch and just the matter of a
subscription or two more than any of
the others will in all probabllty decide the final count. Are you stepping on the gas and going with all
your power?
The best advice to those who wish
to win is to get every available subscription to the campaign de*-*t*&rt-
ment now while the big extra credits
are in effect Not to do to means
that you are throwing golden chances
away that may bring you an Overland Six coach.
To be sure, the campaign does not
end until June 5th, but It will mean
much to the candidate holding the
lead when the first drop in the credit
schedule comes Into effect. Not only
will leadership at this time mean
much help and encouragement from
frienda and acquaintances, but it will
mean the added advantages of placing opponents in a position where
they must get a greater number of
subscriptions to even up competition.
A Wkirlwi.J FiaUk
There are hundreds of subscriptions yet to be secured, hundreds of
persons who have not as yet been
asked for subscriptions. With the
close of the big EXTRA credits but
six days away, it is not only important, but it is imperative that
those who wish to win one of the
capital prises mutt be on the Job and
show real speed.
Increase your total credits by leapt
and bounds and make a whirlwind
finish of the big credits next Wednesday night.
New Subscription.
Long term subscriptions will roll
in at never before, mnny new subscriptions will be turned in, for most
candidates are beginning to realise
the added credit earning worth of
new subscriptions, and with each and
every candidate struggling for leadership it Is almost certain that only
a few subscriptions will separate the
leaden from the candidates near the
bottom of the lilt after Wednesday
Start  Now aad Wia
The $2,600 offer of an Overland
Six coach, two cash prises and liberal
ing stages and entrants should take
advantage of the big extra credit
offer by gathering subscriptions
while they count the most.
Remember your friends antl the
general public are watching you.
Strive to be the leader next Wednesday. Your reward will be up to you
and your salesmanship ability. The
race is to the swift and the battle to
the strong.
effort you make now will be repaid
many times over by your prize at
the end.

no doubt in his mind as to the sincerity of their friendship. The
Gyro Club at this meeting also endorsed the action of its representatives in agreeing to join with other
local service clubs in sponsoring the
appearance of the Coldstream Guards
band hero in August.
Saturday evening the Ladies' Imperial orchestra played for the regular Saturday evening dance at Smith
Lake. A crowd greater than any
that has yet attended this popular
resort were present to enjoy the
music. While most of those present
were out to enjoy themselves in a
decent manner, there were, unfortunately, some present who tried to
make things unpleasant, Mr. Eng-
bright, in conversation with a Herald
representative, stated that young
men will not be allowed on the premises unlesa they behave themselves
like gentlemen. In Mr. Engbright's
interest, it is to be hoped that the
better element will not allow a few
irresponsible people to jeopardize
his business venture.
Manning's store this week has been
the talk of the ladies, and for that
matter a number of men. Why?
Well, because Miss A. Goff, representative of the McLaren Invincible Co.,
of Hamilton, manufacturers of jelly
powder, olives, extracts, etc., is demonstrating there, and when one sees
the tempting display of jelly, pudding, custard, salads, etc., that ahe
haa on display, they begin to realize
that all the fancy colored pictures
of jellies, etc., seen in the ladies'
journals are not all camouflage.
There is an added enjoyment when it
is realized the products were made
by Miss Goff right In the store and
that all the ingredients are of Canadian manufacture. Miss Goff is deserving of much credit for the array
of inviting dishes that she has had
on display. The McLaren demonstrator fa no stranger to Cranbrook, having displayed McLaren products at
the old Fink Mercantile Co. store

Why Hesitate Any Longer?
Cranbrook's l!'2t! Chautauqua got
ray to a good start on Thursday
evening when the first regular meet-
ing of the guarantors took place at
he City Hall, and the usual business
in connection with the staging of the
four days' festival was transacted.
Following the announcement by
President W. Attridge that all office:-, were declared vacant, the elee-
i of officers took place, resulting
in the following lieing elected:
President   J. M. Clark
Vice-Pres  A. A. MacKinnon
Sec.-Trcas,   W. F. Attridge
Ticket committee—Wm. Harris,
chairman; H. Hinton, W. H. Wilson.
Grounds committee—W. E. Worden, chairman.
Advertising committee—R, Potter,
chairman; S, Moffatt, W. J. Wilson.
Decorations committee — A. D.
Bridges,  chairman.
Entertainment committee—H. A.
McKowan, Chairman; W. H. Wilson.
Following the election of officers,
ttie advance agent or organizer, Miss
V. V. Vaux, of Winnipeg, at whose
natnnce the meeting was called, gave
thc committee an outline of the pro-
m which will be presented. The
thorough grasp she had of her subject and the conciseness with which
she treated it showed Miss Vaux tn
be a worthy follower of the repre-
sentotivos which the Dominion
Chaiitauquus have sent to Crunbrook
from time to time.
With the attractive program which
will be for presentation this season,
the shorter time that it will take up
anil the lesser price of the season
tickets, the committee feel that this
season's festival will he a decided
success. A meeting will be held on
Mondny evening next, when further
plans will be made.
The following statement regarding
the new regulations governing the
promotion of entrance doss pupils
to the high schools of the province,
which go into force this year, as announced in these columns last week,
has been handed in by Inspector V.
Z. Manning, and will make the matter quite clear to pupils who are
affected by the new regulations:
"In a district where a High School
is in operation Entrance pupils who
are in attendance at a public school
of four or more divisions and who
have beten reported by their teachers
to have covered satisfactorily the
work prescribed by the Council of
Public Instruction for Grade VIII,
pupils shall, unless the Board of
School Trustees of the district, on or
before June 1st, request the Department of Education to give them a
written examination, be issued Entrance certificates on the recommendation of a committee composed of
the principal of the school, the
principal of the high school of the
district, the Municipal Inspector of
Schools (if one he employed by the
district) and tlie Provincial Inspector of Schools, the last of whom shall
be the convenor of the committee.
All Entrance pupils in attendance at
such a school who have not been recommended for promotion but desire
to be admitted to High School, and
Entrance pupils attending other
schools (public or private) in the
province, and persons who have covered Entrance requirements by private study, must sit for examination
in penmanship, dictation and spelling
(one paper), grammar, and composition (one paper), arithmetic, geography, and drawing. To be successful a candidate must obtain an
average of at least sixty per cent, on
the five papers and satisfy the Department that he has a. good knowledge of the work prescribed for
tirade VIII pupils in English literature, British history. Canadian history, nature study and hygiene."
The rules and regulations with rc-
urd to the Hoys* and Girls' pjK Club
oik for 1926 have just been rcceiv-
d and hoys and girls wishing to
iiu tlie Cranbrook Pig Club should

Bernard Shaw's amusing comedy,
"Pygmalion," had its first production in Western Canada when it was
staged in the new University Theatre
on the old college campus, by the
Players' Club of the University of
British Columbia. These yearly productions have now a large number of
interested spectators, and the success
was most pronounced.
The most unusual thing about this
play is the fact that it is the first
love story ever written by this daring
English play-wright. He has labelled
it "A romance," which is going a
long way towards a surrender to
popular traditions of the theatre, so
fnr as Bernard Shaw is concerned..
CI. Bernard Shaw had never declared himself definitely on the
world-wide question of love, but one
may conclude that in the authorship
of "Pygmalion," he has established
the fact that he believes every woman
has a soul, and that it is more important to encourage and nourish her
soul than it is to clothe her in diamonds and silks and aatins, or to
make her talk und look like a
duchess. As a Shaw play this is the
chief surprise to Shavian enthusiasts.
Although the dialogue scintillates
the way of the same brilliant, satirical humor for which Shaw standi
pre-eminent, this romance in five
nets is as full of emotional fire and
the problem of heart interest as
many plays by Henri Bernstein.
"Pymalion" was originally produced in Germani and had its premiers
in Berlin. Its broad satire on the
English aimocracy and the British
middle dosses, appealed mightily to
the staid German, and its succctfc
wai quite pronounced.
ThU comedy will he produced here
at the Auditorium on Tuesday of
next week, May ISth. The reserved
seat sale i.s now open ut the Cranbrook Drug & Book Co.
Another   death   by   drowning  was
narrowly   averted   at   Kimberley   on
Tuesday   of   last   week,   when   little
Nanchu  Slosky,  aged  3  years, was
playing near Mr. Tom Bailey's residence.     The   child   was   attempting
to  get   water from   Sullivan  Creek
with a spoon, when she overbalanced
and fell into the stream.   Fortunately J.  Ma.-ich, who was working on
Mr. Tom  Bailey's lot.  saw the accident,  with  commendable  promptitude hastened to the rescue and, lifting the tot from the water,- restored
her by applying first aid.   The population of the locality is steadily increasing and it seems that some protection  should  be  provided  against
such occurrences by the government
or  whoever   is  responsible  for the
unguarded  creek.

at the meeting called in Kimberley last week in the interest
of baseball this year. Nevertheless, the formation of a club was
arried out, and it is Eincerely hoped

CHAPTER   II—Continued
With all this teeming, intense life
going on inside her, Molly had small
cause to repine at the hardships of
her lot. What was cottonpicking?
What was scrubbing and baby-tend-
injr'.' What was the disorderly, crowd-
house—what was Laws' Chapel,
when she had all this violent, secret
happiness, sharpen ing at times to
ecstasy that hurt? There were mo-
[ ments when she was so grateful for
being and heing herself that hot
tears gushed up into her eyes, nnd
she lost all sense of time and space.
As that outward shell of herself
which others perceived as Molly
plodded along now between the cotton rows, she was no longer conscious of Lhe loud nt her shoulder.
Her ears were stopped to the clamor
of youthful noises behind her. She
had darted off to where the sunset
was letting down golden gales above
the gray-black sky of the prairie.
This was the hour of refreshment
after the long heat and toil of the
day, one of the hours when she belonged most wholly to herself—a
passionate and fundamental need.
GlrlB just must curl and wave bobbed hair to appear their prettiest,
but constant curling and waving

very life from the hair.
To offset theso bad effects, just
get a 35-cent bottle of delightful, refreshing "Danderine" at any drug
store or toilet counter nnd just see
for yourself how quickly it revives
dry, brittle, lifeless nnd fading hair.
"Danderine" is a dependable tonic
and will do wonders for any girl's
hair. It nourishes, stimulates and
strengthens ench single hair, bringing back that youthful gleam, glint
and vigorous luxuriance. Falling
hair stops and dandruff disappears.
"Danderine" is pleasant and easy to
"Molly .  .  ,  ?"
An eager voice behind her, a
heavy-shod, masculine foot falling
into step, shattered the fragile bubble of her mood, put to flight all the
moment's  sensuous rapture.
The intruder, a strapping, shy-
eyed country boy, some five years
her senior, quailed visibly before her

Molly shook her head and tramped
on stolidly with the cotton sack dragging her down like a top-heavy crop
on a slimly arching pear tree. Luckily, poor Jo could not see the malicious gleam in her cornflower-blue
eyes. It is tho fate of good and
simple men to be thus flouted by
women who Hueeumb at a glance, u
touch, to men less scrupulous and
After the cotton was weighed up,
they walked side by side down the

listening in silence. Save for the
part ubout the new house, she could
have repeated every word by rote.
When he finished nt last on a smull,
unwonted burst of eloquence, the
malicious gleam still sparkled in her
eyes. "Jo," she said quietly, "you're
good nnd kind, nnd I like you. But
I wouldn't marry the Angel Gabriel,
not if he had me a mansion built in
the skies with closets and mirrors

and gold trumpets to call the hired
men to dinner I I hate marrying, I
hate men, I hute children"; she repeated slowly and fervently the cardinal tenets of her faith. "I don't
mean I hate them at one time—the
children "    She   glanced   ahead
penitently at the silhouette of ragged, ill-kept brothers and sisters
against the dusk. "I feel sorry for
them and so angry about them I
could cry my eyes out . . ."
They were nt the rickety little
back gate now. The children, rampant for »upper, had gone on into
tho house. Jo was turning away,
gloomy and dejected, when he
shoved his hand into his blue demin
pocket and brought out a crumpled
envelope. "I pretty nigh forgot,"
he suid. "I was over to the store

Molly leaned across the gate,
which whined reproachfully on its
single hinge, and took the letter.
She raised it to her eyes, straining
to make out the typewritten charac-
falnt flashes, little gallant sallyings
forth through the overlay of worry
und fatigue and pain.

"Miss Molly Shannon, Laws'
Chapel, Texas"—so the address read.
And in the upper left-hand corner
were the words, "Offlce of the Registrar, University of Texas," She
jerked open the envelope, devoured
the brief communication inside,
while Jo watched her, mystified and
uneasy, but little dreaming he had
himself put into her hands the final
instrument of his destruction.

note ran),—We are happy to inform

Molly had forgotten Jo, forgotten
his very existence. With some Incoherent murmur, she cloned the gate
nnd started toward thc house. When
she knew that she was alone, she
halted, turned her eyes again to the
darkening prairie, at whose rim still
lingered a faint arc of gold. She
crushed thc open sheet against her
breast, lifted it to her lips. The
empty cotton sack slipped unnoted
to the ground. Once more she was
on her heaven-kissing hill. The golden gates had parted and she had her
first dizzying glimpse of what was
on the other side . . .
Her mother, an indescribably pathetic, misshapen figure in a faded
calico wrapper, stood over the sizzling hot cook stove. There was a
baby on her hip, another fretting at
her skirts. Occasionally she put up
her elbow with a worn, harassed gesture to push back the straggling
waves of damp brown hair. Maggie
Shannon had been a very pretty girl
when she was Maggie Easton. There
were traces of that prettiness still,

This suggestion was acted upon, and

Saturday and spent the week-end in

C. M. Pennock, vice-president nnd
manager of the Crow's Nest Pass
Lumber Company, returned on Tuesduy from Manistee, Mich., where he
has been spending the past two weeks
on business.
Mrs. George Sinclair journeyed to
Cranbrook on Thursday last to visit
Mr. Sinclair, who is a patient in the
St. Eugene Hospital, following his
recent operation.
Messrs. Eric Michalson and P.
Brun spent Monday and Tuesday of
last week in Cranbrook, receiving
their Canadian citizenship pnpers.
Another little mutch took place on
Thursduy evening betwen the Bachelor und Benedict football elevens.
The Benedicts evidently were suffering over tlieir defeat of last week.
From the moment play began the
benedict teum drove their opponents
continually, allowing them no mercy
whatever, the game resulting in a
win for the Benedicts by a score
of 4 goids to 1. Once again the
bachelors arc tasting the bitterness
of defent, but are determined to call
another game shortly.
The one theme of conversation
amongst the Wurdner "sporting fra-
'rrnity" this week was the football
match with Cranbrook, which came
off nn Sunday afternoon, resulting
In a win for the home team by 4 goals
to 2, a result which fairly indicates
the respective merits of the teams,
although in fairness to the visitors, it
should be stated thnt they have had
very little pructice, whereas the
"tit-bits" between the sawmill and
the pinner have been splendid training for the locals. In the first half
Wardner scored twice; the first, the
result of a beautifully placed corner
by Montgomery, and the second from
a brilliant run and centre by Fred
Harris. Cranbrook soon equalized,
as they had the assistance of a strong
breeze, of which thoy took full advantage. The second goal was a
rather simple affair, but as Frank
Thompson, in goal, was obstructed by
one of his own players, that is easily
accounted for. In the second half
there was only one in it, and that
certainly wasn't Cranbrook; and with
the Wardner forwards working like
clockwork, supported by three untiring halves, two more goals were added. Where all did so well, comparisons are odious, but amongst a really
good forward line, the palm must be
given to Jimmy Gordon; the experi-
encc and trickiness of that "brainy
Scot" continually had the Cranbrooit
defence guessing. The halves worked like trojans, supported by a sound
pair of backs. A special word of
praise is due to "Paddy" Moir, who
took the place of E. Rogers at the
lost. Of the Cranbrook team, the
burly "mountie" was the best back
on the field, his accurate and powerful kicking being a treat to watch.
Thc centre-half and right wing were
also decidedly good. Jack Cumberland (whu, by the way, was a former
Wardneritc, playing on the local
team) did some fine work during
the first hulf, but in the second Em- ]
bice und Powell, right wing, got after him and nearly ran htm to death, |
and his position had finally to be
changed fur the good of the ("ran-1
brook team. The game was fought
in splendid spirit, fouls and rough
play being conspicuous by their absence.

A New Market—A yeur ago a speciul effort was made to induce Mexican millers to purchase u portion of
the wheat they need from Canada.
During 11)21) shipment were made
through New York brokers and later
direct from Canadian exporters
through New York, on account of the
cheaper freight rates. Now the shipments ure made through Vancouver
via the Panama Canal to Vera Cruz
and Tampico, which results in a saving of from 5 to 10 cents a bushel
over other routes. This is a new
market for Canadian wheat and
promises to be an increasing one.
Concrete  Paving et Fernie
A lengthy discussion was entered
into at the last meeting of the Fernie
City Council in view of the fact that
the city was making a big improvement in the city roads, that some
speciul effort be made to have the
property owners replace wooden
sidewalks 'With concrete. Nothing
dfeiniU- was reached, but a plan was
outlined whereby the city would set
aside a number of blocks to be concrete^ this year, the owners solicited
to secure their co-operation, the city
to supply sand and gravel necessary.

Answering » iiui'^tiun in the Iiouhi'
of commons last week respecting
compensation for rural postmastern
after the introduction of the two-
cent stamp on July 1, Hon. Krnest
Lapointe, minister of justice, said
that it wus realized that the adoption
of the two-cent letter rate on July
I next, will result in a substantial
decrease in the revenue of rural post
offices. As rtiral postmasters are
paid on a commission basis, there
would be a correspondinj'' decrease
n  their salaiies.
"The question of an upward revision of the rates of compensation of
rural postmaaters will receive sympathetic consideration by those who
are charged with the duty of fixing
(he rates," he added.

Tendency It To Keep Local
Product From Calgary
The inroads that are being made
on the British Columbia lumber industry by the spruce mills in '.he
northern part of Alberta was discussed at considerable length at the
quarterly meeting of the Mountain
Lumber Manufacturers' Association,
just brought to a conclusion here, according to a statement made lately
by 1. R. Poole, the secretary.
Mr. Poole stated that while the
prospects this season on the prairies
were encouraging for an increased
demand, during recent years B.C.
mills had sold but very little lumber
the Calgary and northern territory, due to the competition of mills
in northern Alberta. Although B.C.
manufacturers' quotations in the territory mentioned had been exceed*
ingly low, and what lumber had been
disposed of had been at very low
prices, yet large quantities of the
Alberta product were being offered
and sold at a considerably lower
Tk* Minimum Wag*
The effect of the new Minimum
Wuge Act passed at the last session
of the British Columbia provincial
house, and which was to be administered by a board of adjustment appointed under the Hours of Work
Act, also came before the meeting.
The bourd. it was stated, had recently been making a tour of the interior
of the province making an investigation into labor conditions and wages.
Mr. Poole stated that while the minimum wage in question applied to all
industries the investigation was first
being mude in connection with the
lumber industry, and after information and data had been obtained, the
intention of the board was to announce what the minimum rate
should be in the various branches of
the lumber industry. The lumbar
operators, Mr. Poole said, of course,
had no idea what the minimum rate
would be, but impressed upon the
board during the investigation the
fact that the manufacture of lumber
during recent years had been unprofitable, and while they were quite
prepared to pay the highest possible
rate of wages the selling price of
lumber would allow, they stated that
the condition of the industry was
such that it could not stand any increase in the coat of production and
that the effect of the Minimum Wage
Act would result in higher production cosU, which in turn would be reflected in dearer lumber to the consumer.

nights at the Star theatre wns staged,
when, before a good crowd, an interesting program was given. The
first item was a piano accordion selection by George Amrane, which
took well. Little Miss Kdnn McPhee,
who though still of tender yenrs, is
no stranger to the footlights, did well
in a Scotch recital selection. The
Cranbrook kiddies, consisting of
Margaret Willis, Robert Willis, Gordon Freeman, Gurnet I'atmore and
Marshall MacPherson, while not
quite yet in the Paul Whitman class
of jazz orchestras, acquitted themselves very creditably and won good
applause. Alberta .Junes again demonstrated her ability as n dancer,
her execution of the Highland Fling
being all that could be desired, the
audience forcing her to respond to

as banjo accordion artists got into
the money class through the dexterity of Mr. Wallace with the wind instrument, which at one time looked
like a shoe box, then again like an
eel. Sid Smith (not in competition)
gave several most pleasing selections
on the saxaphone. Harry Lee, in
his song and towel dance, gave a
performance which was woll worthy

Wallace, and to divide the first three
prizes between them, Miss Edna McPhee taking fourth place and Mr.
