Parliament Dissolved; Appeal    Fall Fair
to Country On October 29th
Premier King Outlines Four Main  Planks  of  Government  Policy   on   Which   He
Bases   His   Appeal
As was expected, on Saturday afternoon last, at ;i big outdoor demonstration held in his own home riding of NofflJi York, Premier Mackenzie King made the announcement thai Parliament hail
been dissolved, and that a general election was in be held on Thursday, October 29th. hi thc course uf a lun^ speech the Premier indicated the broad issues on which he was seeking a new lease uf life
fur the govcrnmentj and upon which lie would base liis campaign,
hi his speech the premier dealt with the record of his administration, Ile cited four reasons why he considered there should
be an appeal to the polls—the necessity of dealing with the problems
of transportation, immigration, fiscal questions and the senate.
There were questions, the premier argued, which "could be handled
only by a house of commons fresh from the people and with a mandate to carry OUt their will. "1 do not believe," he added, "that any
one of the four can be dealt with effectively by a government which
ia not supported by a substantial majority in the house of commons."
Announcement was ulso made the
same day of the changes thut had
been forecasted in the Dominion
cabinet, and also of eight new appointments to the Senate.
The new appointments to the cabinet announced by Premier King
were as follows:
G. N. Gordon, deputy speaker of
the house of commons, becomes
minister of immigration and coloni-
G. H. Boivin, Liberal member for
Shcfford, appointed minister of customs and excise.
Lucien Cannon;, Liberal member
for Dorchester, becomes solicitor-
Herbert  Marlor,  member for St.
The regular monthly meeting of
the Women's Institute was held in
the K of P Hull on Tuesday, Sept.
1st, the President, Mrs. Geo. Smith,
in the chair. Regular business of
the meeting was taken up, after
which a letter was read from the
fall Fair committee asking the help
of thc Institute in taking charge of
the upstair work of ladies' exhibits
and flowers. A committee from the
Institute was appointed, consisting of
Mesdames Geo. Smith, Norgrove,
Lawrence-St. George, enters the ca- Willis; J. M. Clure, Finlayson, and
1 f *""tl * ■•--'<•'•■■   -•»■■ ,.... {...i Miss Mott, to meet that evening with
Next Week
binet without portfolio. As expected
Hon. J. A. Robb becomes minister of
Ministers retiring from the cabinet are Hon. Jacques Bureau, former
minister of customs and excise; Hon.
Hi S. Belaud, former minister of
health and soldier's civil re-establishment, and Rt. Hon. W. S. Fielding,
former minister of finance.
Premier King also announced the
appointment of the Hon. Charles
Murphy, postmaster-general, and of
John Lewis, former acting editor of
the  Toronto  Globe,  to  the  senate.
The premier announced thnt the
third Ontario member to the senate
had nut been appointed.
Other appointments to the senate
Hun. Jacques Bureau und Hon, H.
S. Belaud, Quebec.
W. A. Buchanan, of the Lethbridge lleruld, und P, E. Lessurd, Alberta.
J. J. Hughes and Creelmnn McArthur, Prince Kdwurd  Island.
The appointment of Thomas Vien,
former member for Lotbinlerc in the
house of commons, to the vacancy
on the board of railway commissioners, was also announced.
In the course of his speech nt
Richmond on Saturday the Premier
claimed that under his administration
deficits   in   the   public   finances  had
chanted to lurplusses. The government had reduced taxation he said,
"We must reduce taxes. We must
put nn end to deficits. We musl reduce our national debt .... Whilst
aiding at a further reduction in the
public   debt   we   must   aim   also   at
a further reduction in the Income lax
und thc sales tax."
In the finances of the Canadian
National Railways also, deficits-
such was the preniier'rt contention—
had been chuugt-d tu surpluses under
the Liberal administration. In the
calendar years 1980*81 the Canadian National, he snid, had n total
operation' deficit of forty-four million dollars] In tho three years 1088-
BS-84 there was a total operating
surplus of forty millions.
He thought amalgamation of the
Canadian National and the Canadian
Pacific would result In the musl complete monopoly and, for his own part,
he was unalterably opposed to monopolies of any kind. He thought
there were measures, however, which
could be adopted to the advantage of
both systems, Why, suggested the
premier, should there not be Rome
system of railway service control?
Why should not a considerable saving ho effected by running rights
being granted by each railway to the
other; why should one Union depot
not serve the purpose of two; thc
solution of the ruilway problem wns
one which must not be delayed, but
it would only bc worked out by a
government which had a strong support tn parliament.
The government's policy was one
of no monopoly on land or sea. The
death of Sir William Petersen had
occasioned some delay and alteration
in the government's Intention to cope
with the problem.
In Immigration, Canada required
a vigorous policy and, within the past
few days, an arrangement had heen
the Fair committee and take charge
and help in every way possible. It
was decided to ask if the Institute
could serve refreshments nt the Fair.
Permission was given, so the Institute hope to do a fair share of business by serving refreshments at the
fall Fair on Wednesday, Sept. lGtb.
A paper on "Local Neighborhood
Needs," and a splendid one, too, was
given by Mr. II. L. Porter. It is
very much regretted that more than
Institute members wore »ot present
to hear Mr. Porter speak on several
local problems, uno being supervision of tho new playground, which he
advised the Institute to go after well
and see thnt a supervisor is appointed for next year, also that a delegation go to the police commissioners to see that the curfew law is enforced more rigidly, as boys and I
girls of eight years old have been j
found in hack alloys after curfew j
has been rung. A very straight
talk on ".Motherhood," the sacred- j
ness of which is much abused in
lying to one's own children. This
:is very much impressed on. Home
fluetiCC hns much to do with the
moulding of a young life. In dosing, Mr. Porter asked for the cooperation of parents with the school
hoard for supervision of the play
hour, mid remarked that one hnd in
Cranbrook,   thanks   to   the   Rotary
members, the best playground ill
west -in Canada. Now, the new problem was the care and supervision of
it.    lt is much regretted that we are
come to between the department of
Immigration and the railway com*
panies whereby their agencies over-
as will be brought Into more effective CO-Operatton with each other.
On the tariff, there must he nn
ffort to find a middle path between
xlrenies. "What WO require," said
the premier, "is a commonsense tar-
tf, not a tariff baaed on any economic theory to be made tu prevail
to the exclusion uf all others; a tariff lu tho general interest of all closes -ind of all parts. The tariff poll*
y must be one to serve both east
and west. To this end, the government wns appointing an advisory
hoard on the tariff situation and un
this board women would be given
Dealing with the senate the premier observed that the Liberal government had been face to fuce with
a senate chamber which had not hesitated to show its hostility on innumerable occasions. Senate reform,
he said, must come from within, not
from without. Tbis would bc effected by making certain of the presence
in thc senate of sufficient Liberal
members who could he relied upon to
support and carry through whatever
measure of sennte reform thnt might
be sent from the commons as a mut
ter of government policy. By the
appointment recently of eight senators so pledged the adverse Conservative majority had been reduced to
15, and the filling of two more vacancies within a few days would re
ducc It still more—to 18. He ap
pealed for support for Liberal candidates to assure continuance of this
policy nf reform.
Expectation is That Exhibits Will Be More Numerous
Than   Usual
The 15th and 10th an iln> dates
if the Agricultural Fair, The two
dates have been mentioned so that
inhibitors will hove ihe 15th to net
their exhibits up on display, antl
■very exhibit in the agricultural hall
must he placed and ready to he judged by 0 o'clock Wednesday, the 10th.
This is essential as the judging In tho
building must be completed sn that
thi' building can he officially opened
to the public al I o'clock un the ltith.
There will he directors in charge on
lhe loth tn receive exhibits in the
building and there will be a man in
charge on the night of the 15th so
that exhibits will be properly looked after and everyone is urged lo
get their exhibits in un Tuesday afternoon if possible.
In connection with the exhibits in
thc building, it is hoped that everyone who is exhibiting will make their
entries as soon as possible so that the
Association will know what space the
/arious sections will require. It is
expected that the agricultural hall is
going to be crowded for room as a
great number of new exhibitors have
expressed their intentions of showing, so that the sooner the exhibitors
will put in their entries, the more
they will  assist the  Association.
With regard to thc live stock exhibits, the live stock judging will have
to start shnrp at '.) o'clock of the Kith
as it is only a one-day Fair, and the
attention of the boys antl girls who
are entering in the judging competition is called to the fact that thoir
judging will be the first on the program on the morning of the 10th.
This is essential as they must judge
the slock beforo it is brought in the
ring for the official placing of the live
stock judges. Ring side entries will
be taken in this work, nnd it is hoped
that every boy and girl will eudeav-
|or to be present ami compete for
the prizes that nre offered.
The hoys* end girls' Pig Club will
be judged in the morning of the KUh
and the cattle and burse classes will
follow on throughout the rest of the
i day.
Additional special prize: Special
prize for bestcollection of cookery
made from whtde wheat flour with
not more than one third of white
flour added, to be com poled for by
farmers' wives nr daughters. First
priae, $2.25; second prize, $1.7$!
third prize, $1.00.
Thc management of the fair, assisted by the Women's Institute,
have made plans for thc fair this
year thai will do tbe city and district
credit. It is expected that a large
number of entries will be made in all
closes, and that lhe exhibits will be
well worth seeing. The sideshows
to bc put op by the Conklin & Onr-
rett Amusement Co., will also tend
to make things mote interesting.

losing a man like Mr. Porter, but
what is Cranbrook's loss is another's
gain. The Institute hopes that at
some other time we may still hope to
hear from Mr. Porter ngain. Mrs.
IL Dnvis gave a song, "That Old
Fashioned Mother of Mine." which
wns very much enjoyed, and also responded wiih an encore. Afternoon
wos then served, after which the
meeting closed by singing the National Anthem.
Dr. .1. II. King, minister of public
works at OttjfWa, arrived in the city

Attendance Not As Large As
Hoped For, But Program is Good
Winner of Popular Girl Contest
H. S. Gradua-
tion Exercises
Auditorium Is Crowded For
Unique Event on Tuesday
Evening Last
Apart from its unique nature, making scholastic history In Lho west,
as one of thc (speakers pointed out,
tho gathering ih the Auditorium on
Tuesday night of this week, when the
high school graduation exercises
were held, was ,a complete success in
every way. Well conceived, ably
arranged and enthusiastically carried
out, the affair was in tho mindg of
'all who attended, a brilliant
The idea was first advanced at a
school board meeting two months
ago, when the idea was discussed at
a session when lhe principal and the
inspector were conferring with the
board. Although severing his con-
tiuu with the school at the end of
last term, Mr. Porter, tiie principal
during the last two years when such
unusual success has attended Lhe matriculating class, consented to remain and carry through the idea, which
had of necessity to bo deferred till
, fall, when tho pupils could bo gathered together again. The exercises held on Xuej&Ay evening were the
outcome of these arrangements, and
no belter opinion of it can be found
than in the unanimous desire expressed to make a similar function part
of the yearly high school program.
All the available seats in the large
hall had been assigned to interested
parents and friends, and had there
been room, many more would have
undoubtedly liked to have attended,
On the platform, besides the graduating class of twenty-four members,
there were seateti F. IL Dezall, the
chairman of the school board, and
who fittingly presided over the gathering, Mrs. J. J. Jackson, another
member of the school board, Mayor
T. M. Huberts, Mr. ti. J. Spreull, one
of the speaker.- for the evening, Messrs. II. L. Purler and H. M. Archer,
the past and present high school principals respectively, Mr. Barclay, of
the stair, and Messrs. F. M. MacPherson and E, Paterson, the donors of
the baseball cups competed for by
the teams of (ranbrook high school
and the Kimlierley Juniors last season ami won by the former.
After the singing of "Oh, Canada"
Mr. Dezall opened the program of
the evening with some appropriate remarks, lie welcomed tho large attendance as an evidence of the increasing Interest being taken in
school mailers, and felt that Cranbrook had every reason to be proud
(Continued on  Page Three)
Monday last, the first day of the
two days'  festivities planned by the
,.Agricultural Association as their fall
'fair program, was carried out, so far
as the board was concerned, to a successful    conclusion.     The    weather
j man, who had been showing a disposition to cast in his lot with the
j wels, came forward at the last mln*
j ute with as fine a day as one could
wish for.    Old Sol coming out in all
ihis    splendor,     soon     dispelled     all
'traces   of   the   visitation    of   Jack
i Frost the previous night.
I    The first event on the card  was
la baseball game. Possibly so as not
to show up to disadvantage, the management of previous athletic events
and oiher games in Cranbrook, this
'did not start on time, which was very |
satisfactory  to  many who  seem  to
[figure that way antl, consequently,
wore not disappointed when they
found that some of the players hail
Ibeoh delayed to such an extent that
the game did  not start until eleven
; o'clock instead of ten o'clock.
| For some reason or other the
crowd came a long way from taxing
the capacity of the grounds. Possibly this was because it wns impossible to announce who were to be
the contesting teams in the ball tournament sufficiently aheui^, or perhaps duo to the fact it wus such an
excellent  day   that  the  call   of   the
'motor was too strong. At any rate,
there was a very slim crowd out to
see the game.   The competing teams
'were made up of a mixture of players
'from Cranbrook, Wycliffe, Kimberley
ami Lumberton. One teum, which
might be called the Northern Lights,
consisted of six players from Kimberley and Wycliffe ami three from
Cranbrook. The other, which contained seven Cranbrook players nnd
two from Lumberton, may be called
the ('rows. The Northerns went to
bat first and succeeded in getting one
run across in. this frame. -MltffrtQMI
scoring. The Crows cnme right back
with a run in their half, Clapp bringing it in. In the second both sides
touched the chalk once, Genest for
the Northerns nnd Hogarth for the
Crows muking the necessary registrations on the home plate. In the
third innings both teams went without n score but in the fourth they
up for it by scoring two runs,
Mellor nnd Genest scoring for the
Norths and Holman nnd Hogarth
for the Crows. For the Norths, the
fifth innings was fruitless us it was
also for the Crows. In the sixth,
Mellor, McMahon antl Brogan each
came through with a run while Holman was the only one to add another for the Crows. Thus the game
ended 7 to 5 in favor of the bright
Lights, Thc game was featuretl by
the heavy hitting of Hogarth who
secured two three-baggers and also
by a brilliant catch by Findlay.
The line-up was as follows: The
Northern Lights—Mellor, Staples,
McMahon, Rogers, Holman, Johren,
Genest, Woodman and Brogan. The
Crows—Clapp, Logan, Bamford, Mitchell, Mortimer, McDonald, Findlay.
Jlolman  and  Hogarth.
In the evening the game between
the Cranbrook High school team antl
the Indian team proved to be very
interesting, the support of the crowd
being more definitely divided thnn nt

It was with a very general feeling
of regret that the news was heard
last Friday and Saturday of the very
serious illness of Cranbrook's esteemed physician. Dr. Green, the news
mlng ns a surprise la many who
hnd seen lum around ns usual only a
hurt time before. Upon examination by Dr. McKinnon, it was decided
operate for appendicitis. When
this was done it was discovered that
the appendix was in a condition
which had not even been suspected.
Following the operation, the patient
became worse and all that could, be
jilom> t>v Ur. McK'r^n .vat do"!* to
'fleet recovery. Time" not permitting
i personal consultation with expert.-:
from away, telegraphic communication was obtained with the Mayo
brothers, at Rochester, Minn., and
after consultation by their staff of
experts word was received from them
by wire concurring exactly in the
treatment being used by Dr. McKinnon. A similar consultation wa- on-
ducted with an eminent physician in
Calgary with the s^me result. Sunday and Monday the patient's condition remained extremely serious,
his relatives and many friends being
particularly anxious. Dr. King was
advised at Ottawa as to the condition of his friend and former partner and he arranged to leave for the
west at once, two 'lays earlier than
planned, reaching ("ranbrook Thursday noon. As we. go to press we
learn that the doctor's condition is
very much improved and that while
not out of 'lunger his condition is
most hopeful.

An curly severe winter is forecast
this year, according to a press dispatch from Banff. The most untamable man-fearing beasts have already come down from the heights
of their summer abode on mountains
in the Rockies and havo become so
tame that they are being fed from
the back yards of Banff homes. Bear,
elk and antelope are literally running the streets of Banff in broad
daylight, with no show of fear in
their demeanor.
Never, until a fow days ago, has
there Iieen any records there of the
cinnamon hear mixing with human
beings, but a large yellow specimen
has been calling daily at the back
door of Sir James Lougheed's home,
begging Cor Eood. The animal stands
seven feet tall on his hind feet.
Stiiangely enough this cinnamon will
not touch food that is thrown on the
ground to him.
Several large bull elk loiter for
hours every day around the Canadian Pacific Railway station at Banff,
licking human hands, while children
tug at their antlers. Such familiarity and tolerance has never been observed before in the elk.
Antelope, travelling in pairs of
small twins, a little more shy, are
seen everywhere in the woods in that
vicinity. In ordinary years none of
these animals are suen down out of
the higher altitudes of the mountains
from early spring until late fall, and
none of the rare cinnamon bear,
wliich ranks with the grizzly in ferociousness, has ever been seen in the
town  of Banff,  winter  or summer.
Coupled with the unusual behavior
of these animals, the fact that summer gophers and ground squirrels
arc already hecticly burying away
their winter rations of pine burrs,
presages a hard, early winter, according to trappers, packers and
mountaineers of tho district.

"With the motor roads worming
their way into the parks the man who
desires to escape the hurry and bus>
tie of the city with its smell of burnt
gas must soon push his way into the
untraveled interiors of the Rockies
and Selkirks. Glacier Park, in Brit
ish Columbia, should be left free
from the auto evil for the mnn who
desires to hike or ride in communion with nature, far from evidences
of the modern mad rush," declares
E. N. Russell, superintendent of
Yoho nnd Glacier national parks.
First Banff was opened to the
motor tourist, thon Lake Louise and
now Yoho Park will experience an influx of cars when the new road is
opened next spring.
He advocates that the 400 square
miles of Glacier Pnrk be left as close
to nature as possible without motor
roads to bring in the motor tourists.
■ These have more than their share
with the other parks. Let the man
who seeks solitude have at least
one park easy of access he may call
his own, he says.
Glacier Park is the home of the
llledllewaet Glacier and Mount Sir
Donald, rising to an altitude of 10,-
808 feet. The annual precipitation is
greater than in the parks to the
east. Balsams, cedars, firs, hemlocks, and spruces all grow to much
greater dimensions than is found
In the Rockies. There nre ulso
countless wild flowers to be found in
great profusion.
So B.C. Cabinet Will Continue Without Vancouver
Vancouver will not have a minister in the Oliver government for the
present, it wns made known officially at Victoria last week,
at the Legislative Building today,
following the refusal of Brigadier-
General Victor Odium to enter the
cabinet. General Odium's final word
n his proposed entry intu the cabinet, received last week, eame as a
surprise to the government. It bad
been planned to announce his up-
lit ment some time during the
week, along with that of Captain Ian
Now that General Odium has de-
dined to accept OfltCO, it is understood that Captain MrKcnzie will not
be taken into tbe cabinet either,
General Odium felt that a cabinet
position without a portfolio would
give him no executive status ami the
somewhat empty honor held no lure
for him.
The government, it is stated, feels
that having offered to name two
Vancouver ministers without port
folio, and this offer having been rejected, it has done its duty by the
city and considers that no blame for
lack of cabinet representation for
Vancouver can attach to it. The
government is not prepared to open
a Vancouver seat.
The government has always taken
the stand that Captain MaeKenzie
should not bo appointed without General Odium. None of the other Vnncouver members, for one reason or
another, are available for the cabinet at present. Vancouver will thus
remain without cabinet representation.

The question os to whether Cranbrook and the district ore desirous
of continuing with the holding of
foil fairs is about to be decided. One
hulf of the program outlined by those
in charge of the fair arrangements
has been carried out, and from an
attendance standpoint it was anything but a success. Those on the
committee, having the fair in charge,
decided that in order not to put the
fair in competition as it were with
the attraction that ordinarily go with
a fair to draw a crowd and create a
revenue that they would hold the
special attractions on Labor Day and
reserve a whole day for the fair providing also certain sports and amusements. Under the chairmanship of
Mayor Roberts and with the active
cooperation of Secretary Hoy and an
energetic committee preparation has
been made for thc celebration of the
day and varied program provided.
Judging from the crowd, however,
on Labor Day the people arc not now
attracted by horse racing or other
amusements of this kind. One might
suggest that had the price of admission been lower, a larger crowd
would hove been in attendance, but
on the other hand there have been
many instances where in ball games
or hockey matches the playing could
not have been more interesting, but
the attendance amounted to no more
than a corporal's guard. In comparison with the support given by-
other places, the record of Cranbrook
in this regard is not a very creditable

GRADUATION exercises, such as those sn successfully carried out this week, tend to torge
another link between the young people ami their
home town, something always much to be desired.
Then there is the opportunity afforded for self-
expression, which is one of the objects to be striwn
for in imparting higher education,   And   n	
with car and heart  properly attuned enuld  Tail t
be impressed with the enthusiasm the graduate
showed for the worthy ideals whicli were given es
pression to, nor the zeal and earnestness shown i
dwelling on thnl intangible bul very real characteristic termed the "school spirit."   To hope lhe hest
for all the graduates i*-. hackneyed, possibly, and
vain, alas! — for life il is tolerably certain cannot
I™* a petal-strewn path for all.   But if Ihey nre inspired in meet their difficulties in the spirit whid
says  "if  there  is  no  path,  make  one,"  life  will
nut In- in vain, and from ihem will emanate the
ample  worthy  of emulation,  whether  Iheir paths
lead them to the high or lowly places.
IT cannol be said that Premier King got away ti
a particularly happy start for the dominion el
ection campaign by the announcement he made of
the dissolution "f parliament in a speech at his own
home riding of North York. Ilis long speech wa
at once a mass of contradictory .statements, and a
confession of weakness. Recently the premier
hail given oui statements in response to requests
as to the possibility of au early election, that there
was nothing in the situation that called for thi:
step, but such obvious distortion uf the facts deceived no one. Now lie comes out with the admission that the government has been hampered by a
lack of clear majority—in other words, the situation
has been jusl as lhe opposition charged, that the
government was compelled lo bargain for support
from the Progressives to carry on, till il was felt
that no more could be surrendered computable with
dignity, The four major problems which the premier enunciates as facing the country at Ihis time,
are substantially the same as [our years ago, and
this is another way of saying that during lhe time
it has been iu power the government has not been
able to eupe wiih them. They are transportation,
ur the railway problem; fiscal matters, immigration
and senate reform. These are not issues enougl
fur the premier, and so he has lo add Mr. Meighen
lo the catalogue uf ills that assail the country at
tin- presenl lime. In launching a personal attack
ou lhe leader of the Opposition in ihis way, lhe
premier i-- belittling himself iu a descent lu personalities, This is not constructive politics, and is
further reason lo suspect the weakness of lhe government cause. If, as Mr. Mackenzie King alleges, Mr. Meighen's speeches are responsible for
the exodus of Canada's youth across the border,
whal manner uf man can this be thai single-banded
is able in counteract lhe policy of an entire government? What better tribute could be paid lo
Mr. Meighen? Hy his constant harping uu the
subject nf Mr. Meighen, lbe premier also admits
thai lhe migration tu tlie United States nf Canadian-, is a serious mailer, and worthy nf consideration, but il has always been very lightly Spoken of
by government speakers. "Wc must reduce taxation," says the Premier as well, repeating a politician's platitude, Bul can he cnme to the country and say that he has reduced taxation? Is mil the
railway problem, particularly lhe freighl rates qucs-
limi, mure tangled than before, particularly iu view
of ihe conflicting judgments nf the railway commissioners? And if lhe governmenl wants to reform the Senate — iu defiance uf the statement of
lhe late Sir Wilfrid Lattrier — enuld Ihere have
been a better time In have dune so than when the
upper house refused to accept the government's
Hume Hank relief measure? Why did the government not take up thai challenge?

respect to the tariff policy, and both sides will distrust
the ministry that in one parliament has deceived each in
turn. As hi railway rates, \\\e. situation is no more
comforting. Due section of the country has heen given

twenty eight, years ago, to be guaranteed as the maximum for all tlie time Unit, Mr. King can Influence, re
gnrdless uf tlie I'ncl thut in the twenty eight years thc
cost of railway operation has increased tremendously,
particularly in tin- Item of pay for railway labor, Under
the King policy, either railway pay must lie reduced to
meet the rales he guarantees, or other rates must he
put up lo cover lhe deficit resulting from the government's action. Thus one section is left with a guarantee
of cheapness, whilst the rest of the country faces the
Inevltubly higher cost. Only tlie politicians supporting
the King government dispute that such is the condition
facing' Ihe country in lhe matter of railway rates. On
this as on the tariff Ihe governmenl has simply drifted.

lie reader who has made such a fuv-
orahle impression on Cranbrook
audiences, will be hero again on
Monday evening, September 21st,
when «he will present Bayard Veil-
ler's drama, "Within the Law."
Tho story of "Within lhe Law" ia
one of intense and absorbing inter-
eat. MaVy Turner, a prptty and
quick-witted sales girl-, is accused,
convicted and sentenced to three
years in prison for theft which another girl committed. She puts the
responsibility for the stealing at the
door of th» proprietor of the store
who pays starvation wages. When
released from prison, Mary secures
employment but is discovered by the
police, who persecute and harass her
until in desperation she turns upon
her persecutors ami employs the law
to defeat them. She develops from
a timid, shrinking girl into a woman
of extraordinary resourcefulness,
living by her wits hut remaining,
howeveiyilways within the law.
Miss Siegel's presentation of this
great character play has won for her
many glowing newspaper comments.
Her powers of memory, ber ability to
change her voice to suit a dozen different characters, ber mastery of the
art of impersonation combine to
make ber production of this drama a

cordial welcome is predicted for her

hospital, at Crauhrook where he had
been taken for special treatment.
Tbe cause of death is said to have
been a hemmorage of the brain, tbe

family were present at the time of
his disease.
The late Arthur Tegart was well
on in his fifties at the time of his
death. He was a. native of, Canada,
having been born in one of the
Scotch settlements which are scattered throughout the Blue Mountains,
about Collingwood, in Ontario. For
many decades now he has lived the

Winderemere. Along with his large
family who are now, in many cases,

and Mrs. Tegart stuck closely to their
farming operations.

Discussing mining conditions, F.
II. Mason, mines expert, states
the Consolidated Mining & Smelting
Company of Canudn, having completed its present program at Trail
smelter nnd nt Bonnington Falls
plnnt by estnblishing an organization
capable of outpulting more than 600
tons of metal per day, seems to be
looking for fresh  fields to conquer.
Lome A. Campbell, general mnna-
ger for West Kootenny Power &
Light company, has been investigating power possibilities of Falls River, near Prince Rupert, and though
no official announcement has been
mnde, Ibis would seem to indicate
tbat the Consolidated company may
have under consideration establishment of metallurgical industry in
the northern part of the province,
provided un adequate water power
can be developed there. The lnsl
is essential, as the Consolidated company specializes on electric methods
for refining copper and Icftd bullion,
nnd precipitating zinc and its solutions.
The company probably is looking
ahead, for us yet there is not sufficient lend nnd zinc ore available on
the coast of British Columbia to keep
a plant busy, but a greut deal of
exploration for those orea is under
wny ut points within reasonable dis-
tuncc from the Grnnd Trunk Pncific
(From the Golden Star.)
There can be no doubt thnt when
the motor rond through the Kicking
Horse canyon is opened to the public,
on astonishing number of motor cars
will puss through Golden in both directions. An idea of the probable
number can be estimated from the
fact that during June, July und August an average of 200 cars per day
entered Banff, several thousand of
the total number passed over the
Banff-Windermere highway. And
when these curs do come to Golden,
aro they to be given the "high ball"
through the town or is any effort to
be mnde to induce their occupnnts
to 'ipend some time (and ensh, we
hope) with us by providing attractive nceommodntion? It is well understood thnt the Brewster Livery
Co. of Banff intend to operate a
daily sight-seeing motor service from
BanfT to Windermere, Golden and
Banff, nnd from Banff to Golden,
Windermere and Banff, and it is
learned that this company and the C.
P. R. Co. are already mnking plans
for the erection of a bungalow camp
for the use of their patrons and thnt
this camp is likely to be in the vicinity of Golden, but not in the town
itself. The advantage to Golden of
having these possible thousands of
tourists stop overnight with us instead of a few miles nway are obvious
and the matter seems worthy uf the
prompt attention of our public spirited citizens.
The young people of thc Salvntion
Army will hold n special Rally Day
song service nt 7.30 on Sunday evening A very cordial invitation is extended all who care to attend this
interesting event.

pils. In Public school we were what
you older folks might say, just a
bunch of kids, but in two brief
months everybody seemed to change.
The boys, for instance, began to use
a little brillantine, occasionally, and
to wear long trousers, also one might
notice a little fuzz on the upper lip,
and we were wondering when we
would be able to use a razor like
Our first yenr, under the princi-
pnlship of Mr. Wilson, wns a year
full of enjoyment nnd hard work.
From the first the class promised
well. It seemed ut once to take a
good share of the responsibility of
school life. From the first the school
spirit was instilled in us, hecnuse,
without Ihe hest of school spirit it is
not a school, it is just a prison,
where we come to work dny after
duy. It was poinled out to us that
we were part of the school and it
was up to us to make it go. The
class aoemod to be mude up of leaders in all branched of school activities. Sport was always encouraged,
because it is one of the greatest factors in building up the school spirit,
und we hope that it will ulwuys he
the school spirit which makes the
school, and not the school which
arouses enthusiasm. Of course, we
don't mean to say that it was all
work, because, many times we were
into mischief of some sort or another during that first year of high
On passing into Second year, the
two first years united, making one
strong class, which wus to prove a
strong factor in school life. At the
beginning of the yeur we had a very
radical change of teachers, all the
old teachers resigning, except Mr.
Barclay. The new teachers, with Mr.
Porter as principal, stepped right into the work and made our school go.
More interest was now taken in
school life, and some began to try
for the silver C, which was offered
by the principal for the one obtaining the highest number of points for
contributions toward the school magazine. This prize, I might say, was
won by Murgaret Johnson. School
now begun to take on a more serious
aspect, and we began to wonder
about life's work and what it all
meant to us. During the winter
months the tennis court wus flooded.
Hockey was played and much enjoyment had.
About the middle of the term one
of thc teachers resigned und Mr.
McLoughlin became our class toucher,
nnd a stnuncher Irishman 1 don't
believe could live; he liked a good
joke, but he also liked a good scrap.
In the spring our usuul tournament wus played, with the result
thut Norman Parker won the Men's
Then came examinations, and
most of the class passed except a
very few, nnd almost all decided to
go to matriculation.
We were now the third year class
and the leaders of the school, anyway, that is what the teachers always told us, especially when they
caught us in mischief, and we were
held responsible for n large part of
school activities. This was a year
of hard study, aB we realized what
it meant to iis to pass. Berta Cameron, who is our prize essay writer,
won the second prize in the Blue
Goose Fire Underwriters' essay competition, with hundreds of entries
from all over the province. We are
certainly proud of Berta and the
honor she has brought to Cranbrook
We held a school baseball league
with the aid of Arthur Shankland,
Henry Godderis and Joe Brogan,
who acted as pitchers in the school
league. Joe Brogan successfully
captained a baseball team which
played good, clean games with Kimberley, ns the rivalry is always keen
between these teams. Alternate
gnmes were pluyed nt Crnnbrook and
Kimberley, and the tying gnme W08
played on neutral grounds at Wy-
iffe. This team won the league and
the cups which are to be presented
tonight. Mnny other events occured
which are too numerous to mi'Utioii,
nnd time is lacking to give any further account.
We stand before you tonight as
the first high school class in the province to hold u grnduullon exercise.
We are a united class. Twenty-four
wrote the examinations, twenty-
four are graduating tonight, with
only six siipplementurics. This is
the highest record ever made by nny
class in the history of our school.
In fart, Crunbrook high school graduating class this yeur headed every
school in the province with the highest percentage of passes. We ure
not stating this in any spirit of bragging, but we ure proud to have assisted in bringing honor to our
We trust that at future graduation exercises a history more complete of its activities will be told
as our school develops.   I thank you.

Thc leading countries of the world
are co-operating through the union
of Geodesy and Geophysics in a survey to determine the Eorce of gravity. Canada, hy reason of its large
area, i.s a very important field for
this investigation, which has been
carried ou for some years, and about
Ighty determinations made in Cnna-
a   with   vory   gratifying   results   iu
ther countries as well at home.
From the combined results, of observations   taken   over   the   earth's
surface    several    conclusions    have
been arrived at, being the curvature

building, It also enables one to observe the change in gravity us he
would proceed at the same level for
I one mile north or south from a given
point. The unit of force in terms
of which the measurements are ta-
! ken is so small that it would take
two billions of them to equal the
weight i»f une  pound avoirdupois.
In order t<> obtain this accuracy it
is necessary to set the pendulum up
in a case from which most of the air
has been withdrawn. This case in
turn must he set on n concrete base.
.Minute corrections are to allow for
temperature and other known disturbing effects, Bach day thc time
must be known to within a tenth of

1,11'val observatory at Annapolis, Maryland, the gravity observer in the
field is usually able at least once a
day to compare (he chronometer
with which he rates thc pendulum.
Again in turn small corrections to
Annapolis clock are made from the
comparisons by the astronomers of
the Dominion observatory at Ottawa,
until as accurate a conclusion is finally reached as is possible.

particularly desired to express to" Mr.

their contributions to the program nt
the recent high school graduation exercises by the students of the graduating clnss, the impression has got

A new parquet floor put in the

comment) permitting of n style of
window dressing thut is coming into vogue more und more in the city
atores in that line. The work was
executed by Geo. R. Lensk, local
contractor, who made up the design
and executed it in his own workshops.
Oak and mnhoghnny are the materials used, and the size of the grained
squares can be varied according to
the nature of the work. This is
similar iu design to the parquet
floors found in a few of the homes
in the city, but it is the first one

Mr. Bruce Robinson wishes to announce that his fall term opened on
September 8th. In connection with
the matter of acquiring a musical education, Mr. Robinson says "Music
is like a rough road, which
you must travel carefully. Getting
a prompt start is half the battle.
Practice makes perfect. "Thnt is good
teaching which does for the pupil
only thnt which he cannot do for
himself." Don't handicap your own
success. From thc start, resolve to
practice regularly. It wns the greut
pianist, Mark Hambourg, who said
"Sometimes one hears of people doing five or six hours of practice a
duy. May In-! But a greut painter once suid that a student who
couldn't make nn artist on three
hours u day never would make one."
We cannot ull be virtuosos, and if
for nothing else music hns the power to form character, To the music
lovers and those who intend to tuke
up this art, no matter what instrumentation, I would ask again to "Be
Ready for work," for work it is,
and not be like those who have had
the chance, but failed to grasp it.
One can spend a lot of money on
music to no avail. The following
pupils of Mr. Robin-mi, who were
successful in the examinations held
