The Sunny side of the War.
With Wallace Beery and Raymond Hatton —
A Real Entertainment.
Two Shows Each Night at 7.30 and 9.30.
Ladner Likely
New Leader
Withdrawal of Bowser Helps
Conservatives at Kamloops
to Decision
Word reached the city on Wednesday evening from Kamloops that VV.
J. Bowser had withdrawn his name
from consideration as leader of the
Conservative party for British Columbia, thus leaving the field open
to Leon J. Ladner, of South Vancouver, the other contender for the honor. The word came to W. Steward,
of this city, from A. J. Balment, one
of the delegates from the Cranbrook
district, who left on Sunday last for
Kamloops. H. W. Herchmer also received word to the sam$ effect, but
stating that the new leader hud not
been definitely chosen.
With the election of Mr. Ladner
as leader, which would seem assured
by the withdrawal of Mr. Bowser,
the 'problem will arise of finding a
seat for the new leader. Several
Beats are said to have been offered
to Mr. Ladner, but no intimation is
forthcoming as to which he might
accept. It is understood that the
government has agreed to call a
bye-election without any delay, so
that the new leader may be able to
take his seat at the coming session,
and it has even been hinted that
there is not likely to be any Liberal
opposition offered at the bye-election
which would be necesasry.
Before a very good audience of
about one hundred and twenty-five
people, consisting of interested par*
ents, teachers, school trustees and
others, an interesting debate was
staged on Friday evening last at the
Parish Hall. The contending tennis
were the High School, represented by
Murray Garden as leader, Miss Aubrey McKowan and Malcolm Harris.
and the Cranbrook Employed Boys*
Club, represented by Norman Con-
noly as leader, Fred Fossett nnd
Murray McFarlane. The question
put up for debate was "Resolved thnt
Science has contributed more to the
advancement of civilisation than
Literature," the high school taking
tbe affirmative. A good deal seemed
to hinge on the proper definition of
civilliation aud whnt constituted its
advancement. An idea advanced during the debate was thnt whnt civilisation constituted is nfter nil u progressive mental attitude, nnd the affirmative mentioned mnny inventions
that hsd been given to the world.
and machines of nil kinds which nn*
made to function through the application of scientific principles. Tlu*
negative, on the other hand, sought
to prow that BOlhe Of these inventions had after nil not contributed
greatly to human progress, hut were
in reality only little short of curses.
The three judges were Mrs.
F. B. Miles, Mrs. J. Jackson nnd Mrs.
Thursday ovonlng of last week the
roturn game between the bowling
tooms of the Y.M.C.A. and the City
wns played ot tho Y.M.C.A. alleys,
When another interesting contest took
plnco, On account of some of the
railroad boys being out of the city
it was not possible to play five men
a side, no teams of four were decided
The result of the set of three
games was the same as that in the
previous encounter, when the boyi
from the "Y" wero victorious in the
first game played, but lost the next
two, but had secured sufficient mar-
gin in the first game to win out on
points on the three games.
The Y team walked away with
things in the first, winning by 104
pins, while the city team came back
in the second, and not only held
their own, but won by eight pins.
In tho final the city team got the
best of the argument by fifty-nine
pins, the final margin in favor of the
Y team being 38 points.
The results of the  three  games
were ss follows:

From the above it will be seen that
Geo. Simpson was high man both for
single game and string of three.
On Snturdny afternoon last, it was
reported to the provincial police that
August Schultz, a cookhouse employee nt Ynhk. had died under circumstances thnt indicnted he had taken
his own life. He was found in one
of thc camp buildings with the gun
beside him, with wich the rash deed
had evidently been committed,       ,
Corporal Smith, of this city, went
out to the scene of the tragedy, and
his Investigation led him to believe
that Schultl hnd taken this way of
ending his life, nnd this was confirmed by Dr. G. K. L. MacKinnon, who
went to Ynhk ns thc coronor, to look
into the circumstnnces.
The body was brought to Cranbrouk. and the funeral was held on
Tuesday from the undertaking parlors. The deceased was about sixty-
four yenrs of age, and was apparently of Teutonic origin. He had no
known relutives at ull in this country.

Wide Circulation
"Yes. I sou a lot nf your papers going t "
Ihis was the statement of n local advertiser to the
Herald when discussing newspaper circulation, and the problem
of reaching prospective purchasers nl the smaller placet in
the Cranbrook shopping area. It is another reason why
Herald advertising will get Ihe business—if any advertising
can. Its circulation covers the Cranbrook district like a blanket, and penetrates also to the Columbia and Fernie districts
quite extensively. This Is no idle assertion—the proof Is here
for any Interested merchant to inspect.
If it's circulation you want—you will get it through the
Herald, and at a minimum of cost. An advertisement, costing
ten dollars, for Instance, means that each announcement It
delivered to the prospective buyer for a cost of a little more
than two-fifths of a cent each.
Make use of the Herald for your Christmas advertising
—the paper with the advertisements set up BETTER, and
with the WIDER circulation.
To have heard the story of Peary's
attempted dash to the North Pole in
1893-1894 from one who was himself a member of thnt party was the
good fortune of the pupils of the
high school and those of the higher
grades of the Central school yesterday morning, when James Davidson,
of Calgary, explorer, traveller and
writer, and at present third vice-
president of Rotary International,
delivered an address to his audience
of scholars.
Illustrated as it was with beautifully colored slides, it was as realistic a portrayal of the expedition
referred to as could be imagined.

Kimberley Artistes Give Performance Last Week in

Cranbrook cannot be said to have
treated the performances of the Kimberley Follies very kindly. On two
occasions now they have put on performances in this city, each time

the one-hour talk was in itself the stances nave combined to make the
surest evidence of appreciation that
the speaker could receive from the
450 pupils who filled the Star Theatre from 11 a.m. till noon.
After introducing the speaker, Mr.
J. F. Scot.t acknowledged the courtesy'the lonK program was enthusiastical-

attendance    far   from    satisfactory
from their standpoint.
They presented their new 1926 Revue program at Kimberley on Thursduy night to a crowded house, and
posal the theatre for the lecture, indicating, as he said, a willingness at
any time to do whatever he could in
the interest of the children.
With a large map of the northern
hemisphere before him, Mr. Davidson
showed the relative position of the
pole in the hitherto unknown region
with respect to Canadian points. The
exploration of this unknown zone was
the object of such expeditions, and
a reference to the geographies which
the children had today, with their
better information of the far north,
was evidence that these objects were
being attained.
With illustrations ot the ship in
which the expedition started from the
base in Greenland, the methods of
navigating through the great ice
lanes, and the formation of the great
ice beds with their huge glacial flows
and resultant icebergs, wore clearly
shown. How the slipping of one of
these great ice masses into the sea
caused a great tidal wave which
swept away a lot pf their supplies,
and which was the cause of the failure of the expedition, wan one of the
points of interest in the address.
Of intense interest also was the
description of the glacial flows, the
habits ot the Eskimos, with their peculiar houses of ice, and the part
which the dog played in all their activities. Thc methods to which they
had to resort when their fuel supply
wu lost, his experience with, and attachment for the dogs, which he himself controlled, were all points which
will be long remembered by his hearers. Touching in the extreme was
Mr. Davidson's story of the fate
which two of his canine friends met
with just at the time of his departure
for the base, when as a result of
froien feet he was compelled to leave
the party a short time previous to
the final abandonment of the expedition, brought about largely from
the fact that most of the dogs, which
numbered eighty upon starting out,
were lost in one way or another.
The citizens of Cranbrook are indeed indebted to Mr. Davidson for
hii generosity in giving their children the benefit of such an educational treat as the lecture undoubtedly was. Important facts were impressed on their minds in a manner
which no other means could have
lumes, with the able support of the
men in the cast arrayed as picrrots,
captivated the big audience there,
and made the performance in their
own town an outstanding triumph
and eminently satisfactory in every
On Friday evening they presented
almost the same program, with one
or two changes, at the Auditorium,
when, between the unusually cold
weather prevailing then and the multitude of other affairs on for the
same evening, the attendance was
not very large, the big hall not being half filled.
The program was admirably arranged, and consisting of upwards of
thirty numbers, gave good scope for
the varied talent represented. It
opened and closed with choruses by
the entire troupe; there were ulso
some well known glee songs by the
company. The program was tarried
through with a perceptible zip that
quite justified their slogan, "Bright,
Breezy, Artistic."
To the credit of the thirteen or
fourteen performers who had evidently put a greut deal of effort in
the production, it must be said that
the details were all well looked after,
with the result that all the numbers
got their full degree of effectiveness.
Mrs, Hazel Marsden, well known to
local audiences, gave a solo, "Spring's
Awakening," in her splendid and inimitable way, besides appearing in
duets, trios, quartettes, quintetes and
sextettes, without fn the least flagging, or for a moment relaxing from
the attractive vivacity which goes so
fur in putting over a program of this
kind. Similarly, among the men Fred
Webber had a heavy role, which he
filled admirably. His comic monologues were equal to the best, and
laugh-provoking in the extreme.
Mrs. Molly Gougeon, formerly of this
city, was another very acceptable
contributor to the program, with her
humorous readings.
There was no lack of vocal numbers, and all were ot a most acceptable nature. The vocalists, both
ladies and gentlemen, presented a
wide variety of songs, and all were
well received. Further spice waa
added to the program by the duets,
trios and other concerted numbers.
The dances by Jackie Pascoe were received enthusiastically, and added
further attractiveness to the already
bright program.
Mrs. T. J. Bride, carrying on most
of the accompaniments, had an oner
The prohibition pnrty, or rather
those who nre opposed to authorizing
tht* sale of beer by the glass in the
city of Crunbrook, met on Sunday
nfternoon in the Baptist church basement to further their organization
and plan their cumpuign for the plebiscite which takes places on this question on Saturday, the 4th of December. The meeting was held under the
uuspices of the social service league,
F, Constantine ucting as chairman
nnd I. Hannah as secretary.
Mr. Constantine reported having
interviewed the registrar and the returning officer, ascertaining that the
voters' list which would he used at
the plebiscite was now in preparation
and would bc available within a short
time. Recommendations were sought
for the positions of deputy returning
officers and poll clerks to act at the
representation booths while the vote
is being tnken, und u number of
names were advanced which might be
considered suitable. Scrutineers will
also be appointed to act for the interest of those opposing the beer sale.
It v/us decided to ask Mrs. VV, B. McFarlane to continue to act as head
of the committee looking after the
voters' list, while A. D. Bridges was
named to arrange for transportation
of voters on the voting day, with the
assistance of others who will be
named. General publicity is being
looked after by Rev. B. Wallace, assisted by Mrs. W. Pritchard und W,
Shephcid. G. T. Moir is head of
thc committed making the necessary
financial arrangements to carry on
the campaign. It was decided at this
meeting lhat committee rooms
would be secured at once, where further meetings can be held. These
have since been opened at the Hanson
'Block, in the former Liberal quarters.
It was also announced that arrangements had been made for a mass
meeting to be held on Sunday evening
next at the Auditorium, at the close
of the usual church services, when
the speaker will he Mrs. McKinney,
M.A.L., of Clarcsholm, Alta. The
importance of getting out the muxi-
mum vote was stressed, and the meeting was described as being most enthusiastic in getting the organization
uway to a good start.
It was also suggested that short addresses be given at the services on
Sunday next at the various churches
by different laymen, the idea being
that there should be an interchange
between the speakers representing
the various churches.
The Great Northern railway construction department is making rapid
progress at Elko in arranging the
new connection link between that
railway's Rexford branch and the
main line of the Canadian Pacific
railway, Crow's Nest Puss branch at
that point. About a week ago the
steam shovel crew and extra gang arrived at Elko nnd commenced about
1000 feet south of the Elko Great
Northern station, the grading of the
new right-of-way. The steam shovel
is now working on the heavy cut

Thursday evening of last week at
the K. P. Hull, one of the most en-
joyuble functions yet held under the
auspices of the Crescent Lodge, No.
S3, was the social gathering which
took pluce following the regular meeting of the Pythiun Temple thut evening. On this occasion the Pythian
brothers weru at home to the Sisters'
lodge, the affair being an attempt on
the part of the Knights to repay in a
small way the many courtesies shown
them by the Sisters. Following the
conclusion of the meeting at 9.30 the
company repaired to the banquet hull
where a most tempting turkey dinner was spread before them. This
was very much enjoyed, especially by
the ladies who considered it quite a
treat to be absolutely prohibited from
entering the kitchen, the Knights taking the mutter entirely in hand.
Everything wus gotten up to the
queen's taste und as u result it is
feared thut there are sever*! of the

future by their wives who heretofore

program of instrumental and Vocal
music was enjoyed in the hall room,
at which members of the order and [
invited guests took part. Tho**e contributing were us follows, VY. Steward, .

Beer Vote
Next Week
Burning Question to be Decided at the Polls Saturday,
December 4th
Over the signature of W. D. Guthrie, the returning officer, there is
published this week thi* official 'proclamation of the calling of the vote
to be taken on the question of permitting the sale of beer by the glass
in this city. The plebiscite is to be
held un Saturday of next week, December -1th, the voting to take place
st  the   K.P.   Hull.
The actual question to-be voted
on, reads a> follow*: "Do you approve of the sale of beer by thc glass
in licensed premise^ without a bar
under j#vernnietit control and regulation?"
Th'* seems a somewhat cumber-
tome phraseology, but its import is
quite clear, and unlike the voting on
candidates where a cross is the mark
required, th? ballots in this case will
obviously require a "Yes" or "No."
The voting will be held between
the hours of eight in the morning
and seven at night, and those eligible to vote will be those whose names
appear on the list as being entitled
to vote at the city polling stations.
.Mr. Guthrie hay not yet given out his
list of deputy returning officers who
will  officiate  at  the  various  booths.
Receipts from the sale of poppies
in Cranbrook and district for the year
1026 amounted to the sum of
$374.55. Cranbrook citizens contributed to thi.- amount the sum of
From this amount, of course, r.a-
to be deducted the cost of the poppies
which goes to the employment of disabled ex-service men in Red Cross and
Vet-Craft workshops, who would be
otherwise unemployed, but for the
manufacture and sale of poppies. The
balance is u«d for the purpose of relieving distress amongst ex-service
men and their dependents in the district.
The members of the Cranbrook
branch, Canadian Legion, R.K.S.L.,
take this opportunity of thanking all
who contributed in any way to the
purchase of poppies in Cranbrook and
district on Poppy Day.
Tuesday the Rotary Club were at
home to their wives and their visiting
official, "Jim" Davidson, of Calgary,
third vice-president of Kotary International, when, in the banquet room
of the K.P. Hall, they sat down to
a sumptuous repast at 6.30 p.m.
Following this enjoyable part of the
function a further treat was in store
In connection with the essay competition on Fire Prevention, instituted by T. M. Roberts in conjunction
with the Hartford Fire Insurance
Company, eighty essays were entered.
The prize is a handsome gold niedal,
and the winner of the contest this
>*ar was adjudged to be Miss Olive
Norgrove. Mayor Roberts personally presented the medal ta the fortunate winner at the school on Tuesday morning of this week. The Herald expects to be able to publish the
prize winning essay in its issue of
next week.

Sunday lant the congregation at

of listening to a very able wmJ profitable address from Rev. James Har-

been on furlough for about two
years, was connected with the*Pres-

made it single movement of negation,
nnd turned away her face. Head
bent, hands still clasping her kneos,
she was, without knowing it, in almost txactly the same attitude iu

Before ho could answer—if he had
such intention—there was a light nip
at the door. With some murmured
apology,  Cochran went to  open  it.
On the threshold stood the woman
whose picture Molly hnd seen in the
papers. Beautiful, charming, admired—yes,   one  could   understand  all
thnl. Not quite so young, perhaps,
as the pictures had led one to suppose, but lovely—oh, beyond words—
with that loveliness which life hud
left lovingly untouched. No scars
there, no poverty und heartache and
despair—no murk set in her smooth,
fair brow. Beside her, Molly, who
was in reality younger, felt herself
of u sudden immeasurably old.
"Incorrigible man," the fur-swathed, silken creature crinkled her eyes
and her mouth adorably at Cochran,
"do you ieali2e thut your mother and
I have been waiting below exactly
thirty minutes?"
"n'js . good for her' character,
though," Cochran laughed.
"Dreadful mnn, What have they

both your arms* off?" She reached
up, laughing, too,' to straighten his
tie—gave his emit cellar In passing u
little winged brush and n pat.
Thoy   hud   forgotten,   apparently,
Molly's    presence—if,    indeed,    the

'She was nice, unspoiled uud kind. t

After a time, somehow, Molly got

One of the most interest nig hands that the writer has come acroM la a
Ions time was submitted recently, with the request that the proper bidding of
all four hands be given. It is as follows:
Hearts — 9
Clubs — none
Diamonds — A, K, Q, J, 9, 8, 7, 5.4,3
Spades —10, 7
    Hearts—A,K.J, 10,8,7.1,1

Hearts —6, 5,4
Clubs—10,9,5, 4
Spades —8, 6, 5, 4,..
Hearts — Q
Clubs — A, K,0,J,8, 7,6
Diamonds — none
Spades —A, K,y, J, 2
No score, first game. 7. deals and passes.
What is A's proper bid and tbe natural
continuation of the bidding? A should
bid one rlub but with the firm intent ion
oi bidding spades on the next round if
thc opportunity is offered, lt is apparently a freak hand all around and il
A finds five spades iu an opponent's
hand and is ruffed in diamonds at once,
lie may nut be able to make game. Fur
ih.it reason, one club seem;-, the better
opening bid with A's hand than one

and A should now pass and Y, iu the

points. He also has the chance th.it if
A-B overbid with seven in hearts that
lie and bis partner may be able to take
a trick. B should double seven diamonds
and Z should pass. With A's band, tin-
writ it would also pass. The double of

the bid of seven hearts is doubtful. Always play the certainty In this position.

Rubber game Y-Z, Hlj A-B, 21. What
would yuu bid if you dealt and held Z's
hand? When Z looked his hand over,
he thought to himself, "I can maketwo
or three spades with this hand but no
more unteu my partner hasa big hand,
iu which case we are in no danger anyway. If, however, he hasn't a big hand,
how can I gel the bid with this hand as
cheaply as possible. There's only one
way to accomplish that, by concealing
the spade strength and endeavoring to
malic my opponents think I have au
entirely different type of hand." With
this idea In view. Z opened the bidding
With one heart, A bit! one no-trump, Y

and figured that Z must be trving some

reason, so he trusted Z and passed.
YZ just nude three spades doubled,
whereas A-B bad five odd either in
clubs or in diamonds. Z's trick bid In
this case Ml well thought out and well
supported by his partner. Such trick
bidding is not recommended, but is
given as nn interesting example of a
clever departure from normal tiidding.

all sound bidding is to get the best bid
for 26 cards, not for 13. Remember this
advice and if you can give additional

His Honor Judge Thompson has
(riven judgement on the appeal
against the decision of Magistrate
Cope, of Fernie, in the fire cases
which developed last year near the
White Spruce Lumber Company's
limits. The conflagration was alleged to hnve been started from camp
fires left by prospectors in the employ of the Consolidated Mining Co.
Keen interest has been taken in the
matter, as several large damage suits
might subsequently arise from the
conviction if it had not been reversed.
The judgement allows the appeal
with the question of costs reserved;
to which extent thc nppelants are
successful, but, on the other hand,
in the facts his honor finds they were
responsible for the fire, and therefore it is only on his views ns to the
invalidity of the order-in-council authorizing the regulations thnt they
have succeeded. Alan Graham,
of Cranbrook, and J. G. Cameron, of
the legal department, Consolidated
Mining & Smelting Co., Trail, appeared for the appenlants, white A.
I. Fisher, K.C, Fernie, represented
the crown.
Judge Thompson's findings in this
case, particularly on the legal points
involved, is said to be highly important, as it nullifies the validity of
order-in-council of February 26th,
1926, under which the regulations upon which tho charge In the case was
laid. His honor holds that the appellants, the Ewen brothers, "lit a
fire in the fireplace at their camp
which they did not put out, and this
fire spread, thereby causing the conflagration." j
Thc added importance of this case
Arises from the fact that the Ewen
brothers were one of the many prospecting parties engaged in thnt dis-1
trict since last winter carrying out
a systematic program of prospecting
phosphates for tho Consolidated
Mining & Smelting Co. of Canada.
The fire out of which the prosecutions arose occurred on June 8th,
last. It spread to extensive proportions, evidence being submitted that
it burned over an area approximating
4000 acres.
It was reported following the fire,
that it had in its course destroyed
large quantities of manufactured
posts, poles, mine props, etc., as well
as a vast amount of timber suitable
for these purposes, this the property
of several post contractors und loggers operating In that locality. The
monetary loss has been variously estimated at from $25,000 to $30,000.
It is also ctnted that the various contractors have employed counsel to
press their claims iu an endeavor to
be recouped any loss sustained if the
responsibility for the fire could be
more or less definitely fixed.

The Baptists of the city nre planning a grand rally and get-together
for Thursday evening of this week,
beginning with a banquet at G.,'10 in
the Sunday school room of the
church. A short program of music
and adrosses is being arranged, at
the conclusion of which an hour of
wholesome fun will be indulged in
both by young and "younger."
The Baptist Church has been favored with visits from no less than
three distinguished speakers in the
past few weeks. On October 31st
Rev. Robert J. Melntyre brought a
very encouraging' message respecting
the progress of prohibition in B.C.
Mr. Melntyre is the president of the
prohibition association of B.C., and
as a consequence he is iu a position
to speak with authority on this subject. On November 14th two very
eminent men ocuplced the pulpit. In
the morning Rev. J. Phillips Jones
spoke at some length on the subject
of "The Work of Social Service." In
the evening Rev. N, A. Harkness,
B.A., B.D., delighted his audience
with his lucitl presentations of the
work of the British nnd Foreign Bible
Society. Mr. Harkness is the secretary of the B.C. branch of this society.
The Wardnerites who motored to
Cranbrook on Wednesday ovenlng to
attend the second annual banquet
of the Rod and Gun Club, were more
than repaid for their journey by the
many good things on the banquel
table and the fun that accompanied
the dinner. The menu, in addition
to various "goodies" of domestic origin, carried also a large variety of
wild fowl and game, which appealed
greatly to the palates of those about
.the board, and included venison, buffalo beef, mountain goat, goose und
duck, all tributes of the members of
ihe Rod and Gun Club, and testified
to their skill with the guns. Among
those attending from Wardner were
Messrs. G. Renick. D. Luce, II. W.

of the district on Sunday last. The j
fall, which was of a heavy, wet tex-;

and well on into the night, with thel
result of reaching a depth of about
four inches. However, "it is an ill
wind," etc., and on Monday morning
several local hunters hied themselves
away into the hills to test their skill
witli lhe rifle upon the many fine
deer, with which the hills are reported as being plentifully filled with
nowadays, as the snows are driving
them down from the upper slopes.
He that as it may, only one local man
was fortunate enough to make a kill,
(lust. Edwnrdson getting a fine buck
on Monday morning. Au odd inci-
dent occurred over Ibis buck. Mr.
Jack Hafstad hiked up tbe hillside
to assist Mr. Edwai'dson in bringing
down h's deer, and while so occupied, '
sighted another fine animal, and lak-
injc a pot luck shot, managed also to

an experienced one at that, reports

A statement of this kind bj a man who is both a trained
statist ian and an experienced practitioner of business as director of several large ccrporations, and one who has before him
u variety of facts und figures not available to the casual observer, should carry special weight in any discussion of the
prohibition question in Canada. It should carry conviction to
the electors in Cranbrook, that a vote for beer is pour business.
It is a vote to divert money away from legitimate business.
It is a vote to help destroy best interests of the home. Ho not

how useless beer is fnr a iood nr tonic even when pure malt
and hops are used. Sometimes substitutes for malt and Imps
are used. Cheap sugary substances (such as Saccharine, a coal
tar product) are used instead of malt. Quassia, camomile, cr
Colombo root are used instead of hops. Such chemicals as
vitrol, sulphuric and salicylic acid- are used a- preservatives,
isinglass and fish) matter isnU- -kin-i are used to clarify,
while grain- of paradise, guinea pepper and coculus indicus are
used to produce a stimulating effect. The exact proportion of
these substances i- the secret of the trade. Not until recently
has it been known why thr use of beer caused stupidity and
brutality. It i- now known that glands in the throat of it-male
Imp plants secrete au oil known as litpulin which contain- several substance- similar to turpentine oil. Among the-e are hop
acids and resin. Dr. Edwin F. Bowers in -peaking of lupulin
-ays, "We used to think that we got all the resin from wliich
we varnished our kidney cells from pitch lining of beer barrels,
but we know now that we get our kidney shellac from the hops
which enter into the composition of the beer. These oils act
powerfully and disastrously upon the nervous system as well
as upon the kidneys. Lupulin is the same substance found in
the Indian hemp blossom from which hasheech, the oriental
drug, is made. This is given to official executioners because of
its brutalizing effect."
It must not be forgotten that each pint of beer contains
nearly an ounce of alcohol, a narcotic, anaesthetic drug. Thus
if one drinks a pint of 4 per cent, beer a day, in one year he con.
sumes 14.6 pints pure alcohol. After studying these facts the
man who "drinks a glass of beer when he feels like it" ought
tn know that is injures him.
The statement made regarding the much-advertised beer,
lells people that "Heer i- adapted tt- the organism of the adult
in the same way that milk i- to that of the infant." Their advertisements often refer to beer a. a "lirpiid bread" and many
are deceived by these advertisement-. The) believe "beer is
good for them." and even give it to their children to promote
tlieir growth.
George,0, Higley, Professor of Chemistry at Ohio Wesley,™ University, has made a chemical analysis of one of the
leading beer- made in Columbus, which make, au interesting
comparison with milk as a food product. Each quart of milk
contains ll/>4 |ier cent, of food substances of which .i.-S.-! per
cent, builds tissue and repair- bod) waste and the rest furnishes
beat and energy.    It contains no poi  and costs eight cent-.
A quart of beer contains 3.75 per cent .of inml substances,
mainly sugar, which does not build tissue. The beer analyzed
contained 3.92 per cent, of alcohol, which poisons the drinker.
"Because the symptoms of chronic alcoholism appear
more slowly and are le-- readily observable in the hcav) 1 r
drinker than in the whiskey, the former t- iar more frequently
met than lhe latter. Km thousands and ten- of thousands ni
men who take their daily pint are rendered stupid, -illy, and
dissolute by beer. They will, probably, still transact regularly
the daily business or routine of office t" which they have been
accustomed, but without special exertion, half automatically,
like machines. For any further exertion, however, ior improvement or for more productive activity they lack the desir-2,
the initiative, and the energy. The- beers makes them stupid
and heavy: it destroys the power and bouyancy of mind, blunts
the higher feelings and interest-, and causes the gradual giving
up of inspirations and ideals. Enthusiasm and devotion give
place to self-indulgence, boa-ting and egotostn. Thc term
"beer-philistiue" so often heard among observing people, is
here well applied.
"These are the characteristics of the so-called 'moderate'
use of beer, while those caused by 'excessive1 use differ very
little from those of chronic alcoholism caused by whiskey.
"Beer carries with it most serious dangers to society.
This is especially noticeable In the relation of alcohol to criminality. The brutalizing effect of beer-alcoholism is shown most
clearly by the fact that in (iermany crimes of personal violence,
particularly dangerous bodily injuries, occur most frequently
where there is the highest consumption of beer." These arc
the words of a German physician. PAOE   POUR

VETERANS and others arc particularly interested in tlu* fact that Dr. King lias definitely
committed himself to support a movement t<> have
thc annual observance of Thanksgiving Day made
lo fall on November llth every year. This is something that thc returned soldiers' organizations have
been pressing for ever since the cessation of the
war, and it has'found favor in many other quarters
as well,
Of interest iu quite another direction is the
statement also made hy Dr. King that he has pledged
himself to again introduce the old age pensions'
measure during the coining session of parliament,
round which there was so much contention during
tin* recent campaign.
IT was a colossal task that confronted the Conservative convention at Kamloops this week
iu -electing a man to lead the forces of the party
iu the provincial arena. Much gratuitous advice on
tlu* matter was forthcoming, and not the least interesting was that tendered from Liberal quarters.
Without question tlu* Liberals are vitally interested
tu tbe question, as from present indications only
the matter of an acceptable leader stands between
tlu* Conservatives and a sweeping endorsement al
the next provincial election. The anxiety of the
Vancouver Sun, for instance, not to have Mr. Bowser elected as the leader, was quite pathetic, the Sun
even saying that for such to come about was the
best thing that could happen for the Liberal party.
Most people, however, knowing something of the
Sun's little foibles, would naturally think that if
such was the honest belief of that journal that what
it would do would be to advocate that course. The
whole motive of tlie Sun, and that of other Liberal
organs on the matter lias been questionable. If
their object was to cloud the issue they probably
succeeded to some extent, though those with the
best interests of the Conservative party at heart
would not be swayed one way or the other from
their judgement on the situation. While at the
time of writing the outcome of the leadership dis-
cusmou at Kamloops was not known, without a
question the motive of most of those who have gone
as delegates was to elect the leader who was going
to carry the most weight with the majority of the
party, and the man best calculated to weld the various elements together into an organization that
will function smoothly and effectively.
As a matter uf facl, the m09t likely outcome of
the convention would seem to be the withdrawal
of one candidate or the other from the contest,
failing which there is a possibility that a third name
might be introduced in the nature of a compromise.
*   * * *   *
PROPOSALS are now being considered by a number uf the merchants to embark on the formation of what is known as a credit bureau unit for
tins district. Through one of the papers published
in the city those interested in the matter will have
the opportunity of reading the announcement made
in connection with it, by the organizer who lias it
in hand.
ll might well be asked, seeing lhat it is a public
matter, up to the lime when the organization is
officially effected and the members signed up, how
it is that such a matter comes to be given publicity
in one paper and not the other. The question might
even be carried farther. There are those who will
construe the appearance of the advertising in one
paper and not iu another as indicating approval on
the part of the one. and opposition on the part of
the other. As a matter of fact this would not fit
the case.
It is true tliat this little incident may not be
thought to be of very great public concern, but it
illustrates well a contention that thi.s paper has
advanced repeatedly that it is thought possibly the
public might bear with an explanation being made
as to it. The Herald has stated many times, that
if it desired to take up with everything that came
along that would look like advertising in its columns,
it would have to add to the number of pages put
out every week.
The establishment of this bureau is a case in
point. With the principle uf il the Herald is in
accord. The very facl that there have been several
attempts made before tit gel a movement of tins kind
going would indicate lhat the principle it seeks to
put into effect is sound, aud a desirable one in the
field of retail merchandising. The difference of
opinion entertained concern-, only the method liy
which it was sought to get the membership of this
paper in it. Only the newspapers are approached
in this way, it might be said, though there is no
valid reason why the hotels, restaurants, stores and
other places which transact some business in connection with the organization of the bureau should
not be treated the same way. It comes back to tlie
old principle of "taking it out in trade." The newspaper can have the advertising it it takes a membership. If both papers take memberships both get the
advertising, and any subsequent business is split.
So far as business ethics go, lhat is a sound conclusion based on au entirely unsound premise. If
au advertiser wants Herald service, it is for sale
iu the form of space; if the Kootenay Credit Bureau
service is for sale, it is open for business men to
take it or leave it. Just why the newspapers should
be approached on any different basis as to its membership than any other firm, is hard to explain, but
that is the way it is done. The idea of the bureau
is in many ways admirable, aud if it is evident that
it will he established here on the desired basis, it is
possible that the Herald may be found supporting
it the same as any other member, and it would then
go iu clear of any suspicion that it joined simply
"for what there was in it." The point is that our
signature was required on the dotted line before any
advertising would be forthcoming, which is not a
method of doing business that this paper encourages.

Queen Marie hoe seen enough to
convince her that tht' position of
"women in America is happier than
anywhere else."
The reason for it, she told St. Louis
women, who were her hosts at luncheon, is that "your men allow the women to do their share to a much larger
degree than in her own country-
"I am struck with the wonderful
lives of the women here. I shall take
home a vision of the wonderful work
that women do here, while at the
same time, they are having a glorious time of it."
Thc reception wus friendly, and
Mario herself smiled broadest when

chosen, I might have taken a fully

These extraordinary returns are so
pleasing to me that I cannot allow the
opportunity to pass without writing
you expressing my gratitude and to
say that I and my friends will show
our appreciation by taking further

Your very truly,
Lord Wiilingdon Honored by McGill
I ord Wiilingdon, Canada's new Governor General,
was honored by McGill University in Montreal
recently, when the honorary degree of LL.D. was conferred upon His Excellency at the McGill University
Convocation. His Lordship paid his first official
visit to Montreal when he arrived for tin* ceremony
on October Oth, He was met at the Windsor Street
Station hy L. W. Beatty, President of the Canadian
Pacific Railway and Chancellor of McGill University,
and Sir Arthur Currie, Vice-Chancellor of the University.
Crowds lined the short route of the prucession
along the University campus and the street bordering
the University ground*. The vivid colors of the ful!
academic gown? were seen, his Lordship, tall and
impressive, in scarlet nnd white robes and black velvet cap of the LL.D. The honorary degree was conferred by the Chnncellor. Lord Wiilingdon'! great
services to India and to the Empire were cited by
Sir Arthur CurrU when he rose to present His Ex
cellency for the degree of Doctor of Laws. Whan
thc degree was bestowed the entire assemblage stood
while His Lordship signed the book of honor. In a
brief speech he said: "I rise for one moment only ai
visitor to tbis University, and by that office, as I
understand it, the representative of our beloved Sovereign King George, to express to you, as Chancellor
of this university, my sincere appreciation of this
high honor that you have done me today in giving
me the honorary degree of LL.D."
The University was, continued the Governor-General, taking him much on trust, as they knew very
little about him beyond hearsay. "I can only say
here and now that I sincerely hope that the future
years may show that I am worthy of the trust you
have given me this afternoon.
The photograph shows from left to right, Lord
Wiilingdon, E. W. Beatty, Chancellor of the University,

Lending a Hand to Mother Nature
Unfortunately Mother Nature made
no provision for the growing army
of Iiaftk Waltons in her -scheme of
things. Man supplements nature In
re-itocking the trout streams of the
Canadian Pacific Rockies, through
the agency of the Department of
Marine and Fisheries, which conducts
artificial Cut-throat spawning and
hatching operation in the Rockies
each spring.
Authorities have estimated that
only about three percent of all
Cut-throat trout, eggs naturally
■pawned, hatch. The reason given is
tne desire of fish spawning at other
times to feed on thc newly laid eggs
with the result that the male Cutthroat, after driving of! the enemies
fertilises the eggs too late, when they
have absorbed bo much water that
they cannot absorb the fertilizing
From 87 to 90 percent of eggs
artificially spawned at Banff and
" '      hatch under artificial
■Sjhsds- This b how It le done:
tha and of March just
before spawning time the trout are
caught in nets, stripped, and returned to the streams, while the
eggs from the female anl fertilizing
fluid from the male Cut-throat are
mixed. In ten weeks the young fry
is ready for its new home in the trout
stream where It reaches the length of
over eight Inches in about four years.
The annual spring harvest of
Cut-throat eggs at Spray Lakes -
each female giving from 800 to I.HOO
eggs—is about three-quarters of a
million. At present 624,821 Lock
Leven trout eggs, 172,918 Lake
Superior Salmon Trout, 516,906 Rainbow, and 0,600,000 Pickerel eggs are
batching la tha Banff Hatchery. The
hatrn for 1926 will also include one
million Cut-throat eggs Imported
from Wisconsin and 250,000 from
Spray Lakes, making a total of over
eight and a naif million eggs hstchea
in tbe Canadian Pacific Rockies to
provide sport for anglers.
The outstanding example of the
good resdlts accruing from tnis work
begun in 1914, is the growing annual
ratch of Lake Superior Salmon
Trout at Lake Minnewanka, about
nine miles from the C.P.R. Banff
Springs Hotel, while Spray Lakes, an
easy ruling trip from the Hotel is still
the favorite Cut-throat fishing area
in thn Ruck im, where fishing ia aa
good as ever in spite of tha growing
number of anglers.

Recollections of Octogenarian f
Reminiscences of John Fingal Smith, of this city, as %
Recorded by Himself. *
The   Red   River  Expedition
Sir George Cartier had entered
Parliament in early life, and was
soon recognized as the leader of the
French-Canadian party, a position
which enabled him at all times to
command 00 votes in the House of
Commons. With such a following it
is easy to understand how he had
been in a prominent position in public life. Perhaps he may have had
no real love for his religion,
but in public he had to bow
before it. It was a lever of
mighty power in the province of Quebec, "and, by doing political jobs,
he secured a big influence. Were he
to estrange his party from him, another who longed for such an opportunity would soon occupy the position he held as leader of the
French-Canadian Conservatives. Sir
John Macdonald's illness was a fortunate circumstance for the rebel
clique in Fort Garry, as it enabled
their sympathizing friends in Canada,
thiough their influence with Sir G.
Cartier, to obtain for them all that
they could hnve reasonably wished

for in the bill was calculated to injure the true interest of Manitoba
by retarding immigration. Suppose
that number of acres were reserved in the immediate vicinity of
the existing settlement on the Red
River, till newcomers seeking for
farms would have to go so much further back. There were other clauses
in the bill referring to the creation
of a legislature and to the rights of
frnnrhise, which tended to give a
monopoly of political power to the
French-speaking people for some
years to come. From what has been
already stated n gat-ding their views
and aspirations, it may be inferred
thnt a love for progress was not included in their political belief, so
thtdr political ascendancy promised
no good for tho country.
Although the Manitoba bill passed
through both  Houses of Parliament
with   but  little   opposition,  still   the
government policy ns expressed by it
was denounced by nil the leading and
j nil the  independent   English   newspapers in Canada ns altogether in the
interests of the  French rebel pnrty.
The £.300,000 was paid to the Hudson's Bny Company, and the Queen's
proclamation transferring the whole
northwestern territory to the Dominion was shortly to be issued.
A Force Sent Out
The Imperial government consented to co-operate in the military expedition to the Red River, and the
strength of the force was: a lengthen-
1 telegraphic correspondence, fixed
at one week; battalion of regular infantry,  two  battalions of  Cnnndhm
militia, ami n small detachment of
Royal Engineers,    About one-fourth
of the totnl expense wus to be defrayed from the home treasury, the remainder to be paid bv the Dominion.
Colonel Wolseley, then on the staff
in Canada, was appointed to command it, and its organization and
equipment were rapidly pushed forward.
Having given a rough sketch of the
politicnl events that rendered necessary the despatch of a military expedition to the Red River country, a
general description of the region to
be traversed, and of the difficulties
to be overcome by it, reserving for
another instalment nn account of its
organization and of the manner in
which it fulfilled its mission.
Rough Country
A glance at the map of North
America will show thnt lying west of
the inhabited provinces of Canada
are lakes Huron and Sujierior. They
aro united by the St. Mary's River,
of about fifty miles in length. A
canal had been constructed on the
American side of the river, by means
of which vessels could avoid the rapids on that river and pass easily from
lake to lake. Taking therefore Toronto, tbe chief town in Ontario, as a
starting point, a traveller wishing to
reach Fort Garry through British
territory would go by rail to Colling-
wood, and from thence by steamer
534 miles to Thunder Bay, by the St.
Mary's River canal. It is well to
recount the difficulties to be overcome by describing the route over
almost Impassible obstructions. The
first wns the refusal of the American
government to permit the expedition
to pass through the canal, although
it was found that most of the canal
was over British territory. It was
an armed force, and no foreign uniform must desecrate tbe free soil or
stream of the American Republic.
A Hard March
The Canadian government arranged lo have tbe men march over on the
Canadian side and let the steamer
take tbe luggage for the expedition.
Even tbis wns refused, so the men
carried all tlio necessaries on their
backs and used other means for hauling tbe heavier muterials. This first
neighborly obstruction is too readily
The waters of Lnke .Superior und
its tributaries flow into the Gulf of
St. Lawrence, whilst those of Lake
Winnipeg empty themselves into
Hudson's Bay. These two water systems are separated by a line of rugged bills which approach to within
about 80 miles of Thunder Bay, the
lowest pass over them in thnt locality
heing about 830 feet above Lake Su
perior. Some years ago a route had
been explored from Thunder Bay to
Fort Garry, and n scheme was laid
before the Canadian parliament for
Improving it by the construction of
canals, dams and short roods, for
facilitating the navigation of the
lnkes and rivers that lay nlong it, nnd
for establishing land communication
between them. The first link in the
chain was to be a road of about 29
miles from Thunder Bay to Dog
Lake, by means of which the difficult
navigation of the Kanumstiqua River
wns tn be avoided.

the denomination of 2500 lire will
cease to have legal course on Decern

of this denomination have been selected for this purpose as they hnve never been particularly popular.

R. Hamilton, a CP.R. brakeman,
of Revelstoke, was instantly killed
one dny last week while engaged in
switching in the Golden yard. It appears Hamilton was riding on the
tender of the pusher engine, which
wns backing up to connect onto the
rear end of a freight train. The
train was too long to allow of clearing the switch at the west end of the
yard and fouled thc siding. When
the engine backed up, Hamilton was
rushed between the tender and a
box ear. An inquest was held and a
verdict of accidental death in the
performance of his duties was
brought in. The remains were forwarded to Revelstoke, where his parents reside.

by Mrs. Morton entitled "Thanksgiving Every Day." At the close of the

In conversation with an Herald
representative thin week, Mayor Rob-1
erts stated that he had not yet mnde
up his mind whether he would run for
another term as mayor or not. He
hnd some time ago decided that he
would not, but has been approached
by a number of friends, nnd it is
possible he may re-consider this decision and again allow his name to
come up. The mayor states that he
considers that by some re-adjustment
of city finances, there need bc no increase in the tax levy next year, but
the following year, when some larger
debenture issues are to be retired,
there may be an appreciable decrease In the taxation looked for.
This would depend, of course, on
whether further debenture outlays
were authorized in the meantime.
The mayor has promised for publication sometime in the near future a
statement In regard to street work
undertaken this year, which will set
out the costs so far incurred under
the by-law authorised for this purpose last year.
