witli Sir Robert Borden late ou
Thursday night, left for Montreal aud
New York In company with Railway
Contractor Stewart.
It is understood that Sir Richard
uotlld get little satisfaction from Premier Borden ns to federal help iu getting him out of his financial and railway troubles fn British Columbia. He
lias gone to New York to see wh.it

loan for railway projects. On Ills return here next week the political
troubles in British Columbia will be
taken up more fully with Premier
Horden. Hon. Robert Rogers and Hon.
Martin Burrell.
The proposition ban been made to
let McBride succeed Hon. W. J. Roche

: third civil service commissioner and
Mr. Burrell going to the senate, with
I Mr. Bennett coming into the cabinet
to tuke his place. These changes, however, are meeting with considerable

Card of Thanks
On behalf of those associated with me In the Municipal Election of the 30th ulto., now the elected City
Council, and of myself, I beg to tender our very sincere
thanks to the Electors of Cranbrook for the unmistakable victory resulting from earnest public Bupport of all
I wish to take advantage of the occasion to correct
a misstatement appearing in a recent circular letter
over the names of the defeated candidates. In this production it was stated that the Council elected ln January
last had been unseated. Such ls not the fact by any
means. They simply resigned in order to avoid the risk
of costs of the vexations and unnecessary proceedings
forced upon us by our opponents.
That their methods of campaigning finds little
sympathy with the public is demonstrated by the result
of Ihe election of the other day, which appears to emphasize the view of the electors that there is a wide distinction between principle and blind, unreasoning prejudice.
1 wish to assure the ratepayers and the people of
Craubrook that the present Council and I will work In
cordial agreement to forward the well being of the city
aud the citizens, and we trust that our attention to the
public interest will be accepted as the best mode of proving our appreciation of the honor which has been done in
electing us.

The Nelson Dally News has consistently of late followed a policy nf
ignoring Cranbrook news, in fact for
a time It seemed they had forgotten
tlmt Cranbrook was on the map. lint
it would he better tor them to continue that policy rather than publish
articles tending to hurt the standing of Cranbrook as a city. Thin
week tliey state that the Cranhrook
council was unseated because of
property qualifications. In the first
place the Crunbrook council was nut
unseated, they simply resigned rather
than cause tlie city the expense of a
lawsuit. The action brought against
them had nothing tn dn with property
qualifications but was based on technicalities In the nomination papers.
The News may not Intentionally endeavor to hurt the reputatlnn of this
city hut tholr policy nf lato has certainly not boen friendly toward Cran
brook interests. Tho overwhelming
majority of tlie vote last Tuesday con
cluslvely proves that the sympathy of
thc people was not with those who attacked tlie council, as ull thc resigned
members who were candidates again,
were re-elected.
