steps would be taken to form a per-

hy the oiher districts, instead of the
present arrangement which, with no
executive, fell to pieces after each annual gathering, when a formal organization would be able at any time to
act on manors demanding attention
rather than lay the«e ovtr till the next
annual, when it was often too late.
As they came from the committee the
lesolutions were- dealt with, the representative of the Institute presetting
the matter under discussion, being
first asked to open the Question wiih
his seconder, each delegate then ex-

taken the chair tusked anyone In the
audience who had or Information on
the matter in hand to take part briefly in the discussion. One resolution
that provoked a lot of discussion before voted down was to provide for the
widening of the guage of sleighs to
the same width as wagons and cars;

broke out again on Tuesday when
two rivnl factions, the Ponyee district
men and Dart Coon Club members
came to blows In the alley at the rear
of their respective premises, The
affair seems to have started over the
arrival of someone who wasn't exactly welcome, but who wanted to enjoy
a little fan-tan. Knives were used
in the fracas that took place in the
evening and as a result three Ponyee
district men had to have medical
treatment, two of them being taken
to the hospital, these unfortunates be.
ing Ling Ming and Sum Ling, while
Soo Long also had to be given attention by tha doctors. Two Ponyee
men were detained by the police tn
connection with the affair, and the
following morning warrants were issued for the arrest of six Dart Coon
Club men, two of whom, Dennis
Qwong and Mah Hon, are now out on
hail, while search is being made for

who Immediately commandeered two

take the men right through Wycliffe

There, of course, they could not be

And if the workers continue their

Ijocal citizen brought up ibe matter of tbe pollution, of Joseph ("trek
by tha city sewerage works wiih a
recounting of disease attributed thereto. The discussion was very general
and heated, the Impossibility of. preventing children and travellers from
using tlie water, being pointed out,
the Nrsl because they canuol be made
to understand tha seriousness, the
liter because no motoring tourist is
likely to see the typhoid placards miles-, he stops just wliere ono Ig placed.
Those qualified to speak advised
(hat ibis be brought to the federal
health authorities as being in control
of natural Btreams and ii was sn or-
- oi i i by the vote.
Tho question of the importation of
the hardy varieties of frull was dis-
cussed  :n  great   length.    Messrs. Sam
Johnson, William Hamilton and the
chairman, all pointing oui the graal
drawback lhat fumigation works on
Eaal Kootenay as British Columbia
nurseries do not curry the Borts that
costly work by these three men and
one or two others, has demonstrated
to be absolutely essential here,
Those having tested the matter out
showed lhat nursery stock from Dakota, or Manitoba, by the time It travelled to Vancouver for fumigation,

In carriage fees, in addition to duty if
from Dakota, to which they asserted
could he added the fact that the stock
came in in bad condition and in poor
shape to survive our trying summers.
The chair pointed out that he had
been in almost yearly communication
with the department officials for some
way of overcoming this handicap ever
since bis first visit to Victoria en behalf of the Fanners' Institute in 10115
unlit 1921, and so far bud only succeeded in getting the horticulturists
to consider himself a pesi. To queries as to small temporary plants, Dr.
Wtiiiirnock's reply was as the departments has always been, "that it was
impracticable." Both Mr. Johnson and
the chairman pointed oui lhat they
had no fancy tliat East Kootenay
would ever enter Into competition with
farther west points in commercial
growing of tree fruits bin benefits
of a proven success In tlie planting
and growing of a successful frull crop
suited to every ranch for homo use

that there is no longer room for doubt
that on most farms In East Kootenay

A. B. Smith or Jack Dolmer as to varieties, every farmer can grow both
apples, plums and raspberries, to tlie
full capacity of his family.
Th.it this question Is Important here
was evident, tbe discussion becoming
quite warm. No recommendation was
made by tho conference hut we are informed by tlie chair thai Dr, Wharnock
assured him that if the Ceutral Institute executive could obtain from a limited number of nurseries located
wliere the climatic conditions were as
severe or more so than East Kootenay
a certificate of cleanliness in their
stock and assurance that only tlie
product of such nursery, and no purchased slock, would be shipped tlie
Department would consider as favorably as possible lhe standing of the
certificate and the authority for granting ii. iim! lhat if satisfied as to that
and I Inu no attempts would be made
to exceed the limits of East Kootenay
iu importations, ihey might relax the
regulations to assist us, hut the Institutes unlit assist the department
by confirming the bona fides of members using any permit thus granted,
which we feel Is a concession to our
needs thai will greatly assist at least,
if it can lie carried through.
The Colorado potato beetle was the
subject of a resolution calling on the
department to be as watchful nml energetic In measures to control It. Mr.
A. I.. Hay pointed out to tlie satisfaction of the conference tliat tbe strongest action was Intended this season,
poison and Instruction as to its application would l)o given and rigid inspection practised, but lhe fanners
and town lot growers themselves must

to any fields thoy found to bo infested as it. would bo Impossible for the
department to supervise this whole
district unless nssisled.
A resolution was passed asking that
as far as possible steps be taken In
secure tiie manufacture of logs within the province rather thnn the export.
Pointing oui the burden accruing on
rural schools by reason of settlers
abandoning their holdings, the upkeep being thus augmented on thoso
remaining, a resolution was passed
asking lhat. these abandoned lands
having reverted to the government,
their proportion of school taxes continue to bo paid toward the school
supporl rather than by overburdening
tlio remaining owners, finnlly forcing
them also to leave.
Two resolutions from West Koote-
iay Central Institute were support-
id. One asking Investigation of a new
uarkeiing system In operation in England. The other fnr ibe better I'man-
:Ing of Central organization.
A resolution wired iu from Newgate

such as burnt over, abandoned or oven

iiy made by which al least on<
acre area would be fenced and seeded
to different sorts this spring In the
Fernie district and if sunecessfiil it |
would he extended to other districts'
as a demonstration.
Cranbrook's gopher control resolution was replied to by Dr. Wharnock
to the effect that the department was
intending to devote attention to it but
nol in the wholesale manner of 1922.
as a lot of gophers were paid tor
lhat were miles from any eiops they
were capable of injuring and a continuance of such work would break
the government.
The next conference was set for
Cranbrook and Mr, Bricker was reelected Advisory Board member for
Resolutions were passed covering
the organization of a permanent Cen-
tntl for East Kootenay Institutes
briefly stated as follows:
Tbo delegates present to form a pro-
slonal directorate, the executive being a president, vice-president, secre-
ary and the Advisory Board member
ex-oftico.    A. B. Smith was voted pre-
Jent; G. D. Quail, vice president;
and A. L. Hay, temporary secretary.
The office to be located in the District Agricultural office.
Tbe provisional directors to be eon-
tinned by their own locals or replaced.
■h Institute to have one director.
tlio unrepresented Institutes to be asked to come tn. Cilenlily, if agreeable
to its members to be transferred from
West Kootenay Central to East Kootenay, and the locals to pay Into the
Central a per capita for tlieir own
membership of ten cents each per annum.
ll is hoped every local Institute will
become a member: ii will greatly
strengthen tho Advisory Board member iu bis work r.tr ihis district at
the t'oasl as well as showing appie-
c tat Ion for the concessions already obtained by Mr. Bricker and his piede-

Advisory Hoard has really functioned

action on matters of interest will be

Rev. B. c. Freeman attended the
meeting hi tlie Union church at Fernie
on Tuesday night when a very important ceremony took place. Some
years ago at Fernie, union of the
Methodist and Presbyterian churches
was effected and since that time thru
the rental of ihe Methodist church
for public scliool purposes efforts
were made to wipe off the debt on the
two churches. Tbis was of course a
slow ami arduous task. Recently,
however, through the kindness of A,
It. Trltes, W, R. Wilson and R. W,
Wood of Fernie, a balance of about
$7,000 was paid off and the churchos
freed from debt. At the meeting on
Tuesday the old mortgages wero given to tlio winds, Mrs. W. R. Wilson
applying the light that consumed

affair, W. R. Wilson and other citizens offering their congratulations

Knrl>- Onto Taken liy Homo to
Indicate Possibility of Provincial Contest Soon
A provincial election at an early
date is anticipated by many In view
of tbe faet that the date set for the
court of revision of the provincial vo
ters' lists is April 5th. which makes
tlie last, date for registration February
25. Usually the date for registration
is at least a month or six weeks later.
Gen. A. D. McRae. the leader of the
Provincial Party, lias wired out the
word to all locals of the party in the
province to lie ready. Me states that
setting the court of revision date earlier Is a "deliberate attempt by the
Oliver Government to disenfranchise
thousands of our friends in the country." Secretaries are urged by the
leader to get ready for what looks
like an election.
ln Conservative quarters tlie same
anticipations are entertained, the feeling being that if the P. Q, H. royal
commission—-provided it ever sits —
proves at all favorable fn Its findings
to Premier Oliver, he is nol likely to
lose any time going to tlie people on
the strength of it.
J, E. Kennedy, who has been re-ap-|
pointed registrar for the Cranbrook;
provincial district, when asked by thel
Herald if he had any knowledge of the!
proposed intention to hold the Court j
of Revision In April, stated that so.
far as lie was aware it would he held!
on the same date as usual, during the)
month of May. he having so far received no notice to the contrary.

Canadian Pacific Railway roundhouse and the construction of the

and that sum is about equally divided between these two improvements. In both instances the work
has given much employment to local
men and there is still a considerable amount of inside work to be
done in connection with the extension to the roundhouse.

THE past century has been more remarkable for
progress flf every kind thnn any similar period
in the history of the world. This is especially true
of transportation, which has witnessed the most extraordinary development. No railroad on this continent
is more than one hundred years old. The first transcontinental line in North America was not built till
1865. As recently as I860, the railroads of the continent totalled less than 15,000 miles. Yet to-day
North America Is netted with 300,000 miles of railway and the roads give employment to millions of
men and women.
Almost as remarkable aa the strides made in railroad construction are those made in equipment. One
hundred years ago passengers travelled in open four-
wheel trucks of narrow gauge, which ran on wooden
rails and endured showers of soot poured over them
hy fuasy little engines which looked like a threshing-
machine gone mad. Speed wns then, as now, a consideration, but our forefathers had a vastly different
conception of the word, snd threw up their hands In
amazement as thoy discussed "the incredible speed
of from 12 to IS miles an hour" achieved by the
pioneer trains. Msny years later the equipment was
still of the most primitive character, the engines were
small and wood-burning, the cars mere packing-cases,
•nd as late as 1873 rails of maple were still being
laid down in Quebec. Even the early equipment of
the Canadian Pacific Railway, commenced In 1881
Included wood-burning engines of the old bell-mouthed
stack variety.
The aaclaut cat depleted above represents one of

on the Buffalo-Godcrlch line, in Ontario, was in operation in the fifties, it is not of a type much in advance
of those employed when railroading wns in Its infancy. At the same time, it is far from approaching
the perfection of the magnificent Trans-Canada Limited of tho Canadian Pacific Railway, the fastest
trans-continental in North America to-day, which Is
also shown. What makes the old cut particularly Interesting Is that it Is so representative of the transition stage between the primitive equipment of the
pioneer epoch and the first-class equipment of tho
present time.
A few of the chief points about the old train which
mark resemblances aud differences are worth noting. Throughout, it is, of course, very much smaller
than the Trans-Canada Limited. The locomotive ia a
wood-burner, with an enormous ball-mouth stack and
brass domes of great size. It has not achieved the
slim, workmanlike lines of the modern locomotive but
r.igns of such development are there. The mall and
baggage car occupies the position next the engine, as
now, -but, Uke the rest of the cars, has only eight
wheels, while the modem cor has twelve. The wheels,
moreover, are not of the disc type but have spokes.
The track, apparently, ia of narrow gauge, and, as
the gauge on Canadian roads was not then uniform,
the chances are that the train was one of those on
which it was necessary to perforin the highly laborious
and peculiar operation of changing wheel-trucks
whenever, in ths course ef its journey, it moved from
a narrow to a bread gauge section or vice versa.
There are obviously many othei immense differences,

The entertainment    given    in   the
Kimberley Methodist church on Monday evening luat can be termed a success from every standpoint, The
church was well filled with an attentive audience. The program common*
cd wllh u farce, "The Dumb Bach-
lor" which was well staged and acted, the antics of thoso taking part
brought many laughs from the audi'
ence. Dick McMurray, as the dumb
bachelor around whom the amusement centered, played his part without uttering a word. The ladles taking part, Mrs. Gougeon, Mrs. Quirk,
Mrs. Ohomat and Miss Anna Tofelt
all did their best to attract the silent
bachelor to matrimony but he evidently decided (hat Miss Tofelt was
the "one and only" that would have
the patience he needed. The second
part of the program consisted of
recitations and musical numbers that
were all well received. A short play,
"Tho (Itrl and the Undergraduate,"!
concluded the evening's entertainment. It wns very well done Indeed.
It would he unfair to mention anyone Individually as they all took the
parts assigned them admirably. Miss'
Anna Tofelt as "The Girl" and Mrs,
P. Gougeon as the fascinating widow'
probably deservo special mention in
taking the ladles' parts. Great credit
Is due to Rev. Evan Baker and thej
others who worked ko hard to make
tlio performance the success it was.
The proceeds will go towards reducing the building fund debt of the
church and parsonage.
