Slocks of Cranhrook Druir »»<l W. II. McFarlane 1tn.ll> lliiin-
Hircd—Splendid  Water Pressure Smes Hest of Hlock
l^pper Storeys of Two  Hulldln^s Destroyed—
McCreery Bros. Stock Also Suffers.
The most serious fire In years broke
out Hhortly after midnight Monday
night In thi1 business section of the
city. As a result the stocks of tlio
Crnnbrook Drug ft Book Co, and of
W. ll. MiKnrlaiie are badly gutted with
smoke and water, and the upper
stories of tht* two buildings completely
wrecked. Purt of the stock of McCreery Bros. Is also damaged with
water and some damage done tbe
McCreery building.
The alarm was given shortly after
one o'clock by tbe guard at tbe Armoury, Private Buchovltch, who noticed
tire coming out of tbe rear of the
drug store building. On tbe arrival
of the flre brigade the entire rear
part of the upper storey of tbe Cranbrook Drug Co. was a mass of flames,
and tbe water was first turned on
there. Three of the C. P. R. men
who were among the flrst to arrive
on the scene, reaching there before
the arrival of tbe hose, state tbat tlie
flre seemed to liave got a good bold
of the rear of tbe Drug Co., and when
they flrst got there no fire could be
seen in the McFarlane store adjoining. The flames however had got
such a hold that lt was Impossible to
confine tbem to tbe Drug Company
and tbey broke out In the McFarlane
building. At one time It looked very
serious for the rest of the block but
abundance of water, splendid pressure, and good work on tlie part of
the dromon ami others enabled tin*
flre to be got under control, though
not before It hud got through tlle wall
tn McCreery Bros, reserve room, and
much damage wns done to their stork
through water and smoke. With four
streams playing on ttie blaze the pressure remained steady at IOU Ihs to the
square Inch.
The blaze was a very spectacular
one for a while ami almost tlie whole
city turned out cn masse to witness
It. Fortunately no wind was blowing
or the result might have been different. The origin of the lire Is a
mystery hut is supposed to be the
work of an Incendiary.
The building occupied by the Cranbrook Drug ft Book Co. is owned by
Jas. Finlay, and tho loss is, we understand, covered with insurance. The
stock of the Drug Co. is badly dam
aged with water, and much of It will
be a complete loss, while tiie fixtures
are also badly damaged. There Is
?10,000 insurance on stock and fixtures which will about cover the loss.
McCreery Bros, would not give any
estimate on tlieir loss which will be
covered with insurance. W.. B. McFarlane had a $9,000 stock which Is
practically a complete loss. There Is
$5,000 insurance on stock and fixtures, and $3,000 on tlte building.
. There are now 93 on the roll of B.
Company and the local officers expect
to reach the hundred mark by the end
of tlte week. Fifteen recruits have
been signed up during the last week,
and Interest continues brisk..
Among the recent military appoint*

Belgium, the Martyr Nation, has suffered that Europe might be saved from
the dominating Tt'eel of Prussian militarism. To save the world's liberty
tbey opposed the onrush of tlie Hun
hordes and In so doing gave France
and Britain the vital delay which enabled them to combat the greatest organized military force the world has
ever seen. But tbe Belgians have paid
and arc paying the price of their hero-
Ism. Their country has been over-run,
their population ravaged and oppressed, and all Industry Is at a standstill.
For tbe last eighteen months they have
been dependent upon what was sent
in from outside countries to keep them
from starvation. These donations are
allowed to reach the starving people
of Belgium by the German rulers of
the country, none of the money contributed is diverted for the use of the

Many of the relief depots are able
to accomodate only 60 people at a
time and long quotas stand outside
the stations nearly all thc time. Thero
are seven millions of people in Bel- j
gium to be fed and three millions of
them are destitute, and of these some
are obliged to stand in line for three
and four hours daily to obtain this
meagre ration.
"Almost one half of the population
of Belgium," says Mr. Walcott, "whicb
has been deprived of all industry by
tlie invading army, liave been reduced
to tills existence of daily waiting in
line for a starvation ration."
In the hour of prosperity thnt is

of 59 St. Peter Street, Montreal, is
appealing to Canadians to relieve theso
terrible conditions. The committee
feels that these Canadians who are not
at the front or not assisting the Allies

bit toward keeping from starvation the

who are lighting our battles In Kurope.

Judge Arnold stated hi very plain
language Saturday morning at police
court that he did not approve of the
manner in which some people are willing to buy second-hand articles from
strangers at a fraction of their cost,
without the slightest effort or desire
to ascertain If the articles were honestly obtained or not. The occasion
which called forth bis remarks was
the theft nf three bridles from Dr.
King's stables, whicli were purchased
by a local business man for $2.00 and
a drink. Tbe Judge gave tlie purchaser some very pointed advice and ordered tlie bridles turned over to Dr.
Private Fred Smitii, a recruit of the
225th, was arrested nn the charge and
received a hearing Saturday. Fnur witnesses were examined but beyond
identifying the bridles, were unable to
connect the prisoner wltli the case In
any manner. Judge Arnold In dismissing the chnrge against Prlvnte Smith
stated thut he was glad to do so, more

Advices to the Minister of Lands
from the Southern Interior of the
Province mark the beginning "1 Hi'1
nre season, smlll lires being reported
from the Cranbrook, Nelson und Vernon forest districts. In llie Cranbrook
district the late spring Is retarding
the growth of vegetation so essentia!
as a check upon fires running along
the ground und horning the carpet of
pine needles, twigs, dry leaves, etc.
A hot and dry wind from the south Is
drying up the vegetation in tlie okanagan and Slmllkauieen districts, while
hot weather prevails throughout the
Vernon district generally. Farmers
and settlers nre reminded tliat permits
are required for all fires set from lhe
beginning ot May, for which application should he made lo the local fire
wardens.    Campers,   sportsmen   and
truvellers nre urged tn exercise every
care In extinguishing camp fires, anil
tbe co-operation of ull sections of tlie
community Is desired, In order thnt
damage to property may be avoided.
It la worthy of mention that In 1915.
306 Urea out of a total of 1031 outbreaks were trnced to campers and
travellers; while 207 were caused by
land-clearing operations. Damage by
fires to the timber In 1015 amounted
to $100,00, nnd other properly, viz. lugging equipment, form houses and
buildings, etc., $58,000. Tlie majorlly
nf all Urea fu 1016 were, as usual, due
to human agency, and were, thnrefnre,
preventable. Particularly this soason,

Very lm|nu'tai.| Strike nf MiilybilniiU1
A highly imporuiit strike nt liigii
(■.ratio molylxleuito has boon made not
far from tho west bank of tlio St.
Mary River n few miles above tlio
Mom*lion Ranch. It has boon known
fm* some time tliat tlio mineral oeunr-
roG tn tho locality mentioned, but it
was only within tlio past two weeks
that positive information came to hand
tliat it was tlioro in commercial quantity, Two claims havo been staked
on a serleti of seven .parallel quartz
lends, all carrying molybdenite. These
veins cut tbo dlorite formation a little
west of north in tliis conforming to tlio
general contact strike of the district,
and tiie main leads appear, in some
cases, to be connected by a system ol'
stringers of about a foot in width. One
of these connecting stringers was uti-
ovored with a shot or two n fow days
since and showed fourteen incites of
exceptionally high grade molybdenite
from wall to wall. Tlie mineral, as a
general tiling, appears to occur in a
foliated form, somewhat like mica', but
In tbo claims mentioned, the ore is
of n striated form, suggesting asbestos. It is of a lustrously brilliant
white color, brighter by far than burnished silver. On exposure to tlle air
for a time it takes a bluish tinge, not
unlike galena.
The importance of tho strike consists in this that the ore is ono of tin*
most imiHirtant in relation to the
steel industry as it is used in ttie form
of molybdenic acid as an alloy which
increases not alone the hardness of
the steel but also its tensile strength.
On this account it is used extensively
for tbe stool brooch pieces of tbe
heavy guns used on board ship where
pressures up to two hundred *tons to
the square inch are not uncommon.
Tliis molybdenic acid was tlie secret
of tbo process which made Krupp
steel famous all over tlie world. Like
most secret processes it was found
out after a while, and now the British
Qovernment requisitions all molybdenite coming into tiie United Kingdom and pays for it, necordlng to a
circular recently received by the
tiovernniont Ollice heri«, nt tlie rate of
?12.r.00 per ton, on tbe basis of 90 per
cent pure molybdenite, or $13,750 per
ton to 100 per cent pure.
The credit of tliis most important
strike is to bo credited to the pluck,
perseverance and scorn of laborious
tlays of Donald Mclnness who was
ably assisted in liis researches by
William J. Meachen of St. Marys Valley, a man second to none in liis knowledge of minerals lu the Province
It muy he a little early lo prneluim
mighty things from tlio house-tops
ami proceed to blow our heads off
over the find, but it can safely be snitl
tliat It is exactly one of the discovor-
fes which will attract tlie right kind of
attention tn Cranbrook as an Important mining area.
There are several great financial
interests In tile field for molybdenite
ut present. About six pounds of the
concentrating ore has been sent to tin*
agent for one of tliem and further developments await action on ills part.

while assays as high as $20 per ton iu

safe and conservative to say that a
minimum value of *1 to $4.60 can be
hail from (be leanest of the ore. lu
this connection it is very Interesting to
quote trom a recent issue of the Engineering iiuii Mining Journal of Now
York where, Bpcaking of tho operations ol' the Alaska Cold Mines Company ou Sheep uiul Annex Creeks, the
papers says: "During the year 1016,
1,115,104 tons of ore was milled, having an average value of $1.15 per ton.
The 'iv.*: i ;a tails were 11,01 (ler cent,
showing an extraction of 81.08 per

P. P. S.—Tbe next meeting of tlie

To the members of the Cranbrook
Farmers'  Institute,
Gentlemen:—This your wc are running three Crop Competitions through
tlie institute, viz., Outs, Potatoes and
Farm Gardens.
As the Individual entries In those
competitions must in* filed in Victoria
not inter than June 1st, I want to direct your attention once again to this
important matter.
The minimum ureas to be cultivated
e:  Oats, 1 ncre, 70 yds by 70 yds;
Potatoes '4 acre, 3f> yds hy :ir> yds.;
Farm Gardens 1000 sq. ft., 1.0ft. by 50ft
r 30 ft by :,;, ft. or 40 ft by 25 ft.
The prizes in each case are $20, $15,
nd $10, with an extra $5 bonus In
the Oats and Potatoes Competitions
to tliose prize winners wbo will submit a statement of the cost of pro
ductlon.   The entry foe is the same for
eh competition fl.
Last year, with a smaller entry fee,
tbe institute had to pay out quite a
large sum from its general funds iu
order to make good on the prize
money. This year, with the higher
fee, we hope to get sufficient entries
to make the Competitions self-supporting, ami any surplus over and
above the $50 which the Institute has
to contribute towards the prizes will
go to increase those prizes.
The Department of Agriculture judges the interest displayed in improved
methods of farming ai;d gardening in
the various parts of the Province by
the numbers of entries in these competitions. Large entry lists from tbis
Institute will stamp the district as
being a really live one. In a recent
letter to me. Mr. VY. E. Scott, Deputy
Minister of Agriculture, said: "1 look
on Cruulirook Farmers' Institute as ono
of the llvost of all our Institutes." Let
ns try to act up to this, and take for
our slogan "Every member a Competitor". Then we wlll be able to call
ourselves a really llve Institute.
If you cannot possibly enter yourself, try to got someone else Interest-
oil. Cot aftor those of your friends
who are not members of the Institute;
get. them to join, and to enter for one
or more of those Competitions. This
is the hest runge of Competitions we
have bad as yet. If you don't grow
outs enter for tlie potatoes and garden; If you don't grow potatoes enter
for the oats and garden; anil if you
don't grow a garden—why then you're
a mighty poor farmer.
Lot me have your entry or entries
right uway; your mime is all 1 want
Just now—1 will collect the cash without fail in the near future. If you are
on the phone, then 418 gets mo. If I
am not at home when you ring me
up, thou ring up the Herald Office,
IS, and leave your entry there. If
you nro not on tho phone, drop me a
postcard, or come up to my house-
22!! Hansen Ave., or leave your name
at tho Herald Office. Anyhow yon
will most likely see mo somewhere in
town; bill don't take too much of a
ehnliee oil  that.
Hcniemher: your entry must bo at
Victoria not later than June 1st. Don't
say to yourself that there Is lots   of
tl :  there Is not. Strike while the
j iron's hot, and send in your entry as
! soon us yon read this. Remember the
slogan, "Every member a Competitor".

A recruiting mooting was hold In
tho Auditorium last Thursday even-j
lug, at which Lieut. Ilasil Ay liner, a;
returned war veteran, was the prln-
■ipal speaker. Lieut. Aylmer is a son '
it Lord Aylmer, at one time command-1
:<r of the Canadian forces, and gave an [
Interesting description of his oxper- j
es ou the battlefield. He was |
through the battle of Ypres and Fos-
tubort, aud was wounded und gasseti,
uud Invalided borne, Ho is now attached to the American Legion, and
with Lieut. Jones was in Crunbrook
recruiting for thut Legion. He made
an urgent appeal for all eligible men,
physically fit, to join the colors and do '■.
their share in saving the world from
the heel of Prussian militarism. He
also advised agnlnst giving donations
of tobacco to English Onus but advised tbe purchase of tobacco and cigarettes in Canada and sending direct;
to tho soldiers on account of the super-
lor quality of tobacco purchased on j
this continent. Ho was not optimistic
as to tlio early conclusion of tlie war
but believed every man und every doi-
tar would be needed before tho Ger-1
mans wero beaten. He believed when i
tbe Germans were beaten back on their
own soil thoy would light like rats in
a trap and it would take all the ro- j
sources of the allies to finish up tbeir |
job properly.
Hev. \V. K. Thomson spoke a few |
plain words to tlie married mon. He j
did not believe it was right for married men to quietly sit back and blame
the single men fnr not enlisting, tliat
the married men ns well as the single
men had a right to enlist. It was n<
matter which every mau. married or
single, must settle with his own conscience. Ho himself had offered bis
services but hnd not heen accepted.
Tlie meeting was enlivened by contributions from tbe Cranbrook Orchestra, solos from Mrs. A. B. Mncdonald
and Mr. Carter, and an exhibition of
dancing by Private Tighe Mecredy. Mr.
A. B. Macdonald introduced the speakers in u few appropriate words.
At the close of tho address of Lieut.
Aylmer Lieutenants Jones of tbe
American Legion, nnd Brechin of the
225th appealed for recruits.

There are those who are more concerned over thc fact that England lias
delayed American malls than over
the fact that Germany haa murdered
American cltlzcnB. Those who clnlm
that the malls should have precedence
over the lives of women and children
seem to be strangely indifferent to the
fate of the mall that has been diverted by German submarines. Upon
what dato wlll the mail bags lying ln
tho bold of the Lusltanla lie forwarded
ta their destination!
